How did you get interested in global issues?
I study International Relations at University and last summer I worked at a non-profit focused on reducing food insecurity in my hometown and when I saw The Borgen Projects mission to fight extreme poverty, I thought that getting involved would be a great way to take my previous projects and passions and put them on a global scale!
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I’m volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because I believe in basic human rights, and I believe that every person deserves access to food, water, education, healthcare. It is not about just helping people, it is about lifting them up because I know firsthand that when you have your basic needs met and you are given privileges to succeed, you can do amazing things!
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I got to university in Scotland and I love theatre!
