How did you get interested in global issues?
one of my first fundrasing experiences was when we set out to raise money and awareness for Alzhiemers as my auntie was diagnosed with this disease. After raising awareness I started looking at other issues which lead me to the Borgen Project. I learnt that poverty is still a huge issue and although we have come a long way, we still have a long fight ahead of us.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
When I came across the Borgen Project website and I came across shocking statistics such as: 1 in 9 people are starving & 785 million people have to drink unsafe water. Such statistics put things into perspective such as how lucky I am, especially when considering that the rate of poverty reduction will be decreasing. As a result, I realised dedicating my free time to raise awareness and money to help fight poverty globally is the right way to spend my summer days.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am currently a Psychology student at the University of Reading. Along with fundraising and volunteering at animal shelters, I also enjoy sports such as horse riding and tennis. A random a fact about me is that I am an odd mix of Indian and Polish
