How did you get interested in global issues?

Through my Political Bachelors degree and general interest in the welfare of others.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?

I am motivated by a feel of compassion and empathy for those who are suffering, and frustrated at the lack of action from the West for those suffering.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

I love UK politics, I am an Arsenal fan, I am vegan and I love Guinness. I am a dual national – Irish and British and I once went on a double date with Nigel Farage’s daughter. I also enjoy podcasting, journalism & news radio.
