How did you get interested in global issues?
After taking global issues course in college last year, I was quickly intrigued.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
We all have the ability to greatly change people’s lives with just a little effort so why wouldn’t I.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love being physically active if/when I can since I had surgery in 2017 that led to months of rehab where I couldn’t walk or eat on my own. I’ve been an advocate for fitness, yoga, etc. ever since then!

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. $50: Babysit
  2. $25: Tutoring
  3. $15: 1-Day Yoga/Workout Class
  4. $25: Full Face Makeup
