How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve participated in the National Model United Nations conference in New York the last two years, and through the experience of being deeply engrossed in international issues I have developed a new understanding of just how interconnected we are as a global community; simply put, support must come on a larger scale than merely individual donations directly to struggling communities.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Without shifting governmental policy and focus, any effort made to improve conditions for the world’s poorest will be a catch-up effort rather than promoting direct change. The Borgen Project’s unique agenda is perfectly suited to this task.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I trained in musical theatre performance for many years, and I still enjoy regularly visiting the theatre. I’ve always been an enthusiastic reader, but recently I’ve been particularly engrossed by memoirs of influential figures in politics and other fields.
