As Nelson Mandela once stated, “Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.” I want to be part of the change I want to see in the world and I want to do what is in my power to help give a voice to the voiceless. In today’s highly globalised world, most of the issues affecting one country do not stop at the border. Understanding and studying their causes and effects can ultimately help us solve domestic issues and create a fairer and safer world, where no one is left behind.
