How did you get interested in global issues?
Throughout my life, I’ve felt a strong responsibility to help others. Heartbreaking stories of poverty and war shared through social media and news stories have really touched me, and I greatly admire the strength and resilience of so many people around the world. However, I find it wrong that this level of strength is necessary for some individuals just to survive. It deeply bothers me that as a country with so many resources we’ve done significantly less than we are able and less than many other developed countries around the world. Therefore, I’ve made it part of my life goals to try to help ease some of the suffering going on in the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I’ve found that advocacy and raising awareness for the world’s poor has been a cause that has moved me more than any other. The true difference individuals can make in someone else’s life through donations and advocacy change the scope of the world, solving other major humanitarian issues (such as overpopulation, extremism, epidemics, etc.) in the process.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I have two Nucleotide sequences in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). My favorite book is All The Light We Cannot See.
