How did you get interested in global issues?
Since I started studying philosophy, I always wanted to explore real-world ethical issues and debates especially when they pertained to gender inequality. Topics such as the ethics of commercial surrogacy, sex work, and the gendered impact of climate change led me to do more research about how poverty affected women’s autonomous choices toward the survival of themselves and their families. I’m passionate about how we can understand the various governmental and legal mechanisms that lead to certain groups’ restriction of access to resources and how we can in turn look toward finding solutions to address these cracks in the system.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
When we truly acknowledge that we as citizens of the world are intertwined, the problems of poverty that exist in a country thousands of miles can feel like they are happening to your friends and neighbours. It genuinely feels unsettling that whilst I enjoy so many privileges and opportunities of growing up in the UK, there are so many that simply must only focus on survival. So utilising the skills that I have gained in writing and organising information grounded in moral force is how I wish to start contributing towards the effort to eliminate global poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a singer-songwriter and am soon to release my own songs on multiple streaming platforms! My artist name is Lucy Slade, which is inspired by my grandfather whom always speaks with grace and gravitas.
