How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues when I volunteered in Tanzania after my sophomore year of high school. While there, I learned to connect policy with people, and I saw how decisions made in government, business, and advocacy can either drastically help or hurt communities, families, and individuals.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
It is my goal to ensure that policies and decisions help people rather than hurt them. Unfortunately, the world’s poor are the most vulnerable to being exploited, marginalized, and forgotten. They are often the ones most directly affected by decisions that leaders make, and I can think of no group more deserving of our attention.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love reading, writing, and hiking.
