How did you get interested in global issues?
In high school, I was a member of a contemporary and global issues learning center where we studied the complexities of geopolitics. Since then I have furthered my interest in global issues by working towards an International Relations degree at The Catholic University of America.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I’m volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because it’s a worthwhile cause. As Americans we live in the most powerful nation on Earth and it is our duty to use the tools at our disposal to help others.
