Location: Glasgow, Scotland, UK
Role: Political Affairs Team member
Fundraising Goal: $500
How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve been interested in global issues for a long time. From the turbulent crash in 2008, to the Scottish independence referendum in 2014 and Brexit in 2016 – political issues which have global consequences have shaped my life greatly, and as a result, it is something that I am very interested in.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am doing this because if I was in that position, I hope someone would help me. It just is the right thing to do. As well as this programme being a valuable experience in many ways.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I often annoy my cats when bored (they love it).
