How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues as a result of living in small towns for most of my life. The need, or the feeling, that I could just do more and make a bigger impact in the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering to serve the world’s poor because I have become aware of just how privileged I am compared to the majority of those who live in poverty. I simply cannot stand back in the comforts of my life and not do anything to help those who could use it.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I’m constantly searching for opportunities to help other people! In my spare time, I can often be found editing videos, playing piano, or writing!
