Name: Kelsey Walz
Location: Grass Lake, Michigan
Position: PR/Marketing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $600

How did you get interested in global issues?
As I’ve grown up, I have always wanted to help people. I told myself when I got older and start looking for opportunities, I want to make a difference in people’s lives. The Borgen Project has given me this amazing internship for me to use my voice for the people that can’t throughout the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe we have a duty to volunteer and help the world’s poor. I think it’s easy for us to go on about our days not thinking about those who are less fortunate. In reality, these are people that need our help to ensure a bright future. Just because you’re not directly impacted doesn’t mean others aren’t suffering every day.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am studying public relations and marketing at Eastern Michigan University. I will graduate in 2021. I enjoy the outdoors and being with family and friends.
