Name: Keeley Griego
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Position: Writer

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Women’s and Ethnic Studies, a minor in Anthropology, and certificates in Gender and Sexuality Studies and Global Studies. The wide range of classes that I took opened up my worldview and showed me the vast range of cultures and lifestyles that exist outside of my hometown. Learning about global issues, especially pertaining to women, ignited a passion inside me that drives me towards dedicating my life to raising awareness and promoting social equity.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
This writing internship combines my love for writing with my strong desire to promote social equity. I am excited about the prospect of spreading awareness about global issues and donating my time and skills to aid The Borgen Project in their mission of ending global poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
In my spare time, I love practicing yoga, traveling, and being a cat mom of two!
