Fundraising Goal: $500
How did you get interested in global issues? I began college as a Global Studies major because I wanted to learn more about issues going on, not only in the U.S., but globally. The relationship between the U.S. and other countries intrigued me, and I wanted to find out more about how countries are interconnected and affect each other.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? Advocating for individuals who are underrepresented has always been an interest and passion of mine. I believe that using one’s resources and platforms of privilege to serve others is important in changing the world.
Any interesting tidbits to share? I love dancing, singing, and playing sports such as tennis and badminton.
