Name: Mark Warburton
Location: Gainesville, Florida
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $550

How did you get interested in global issues? Since I was young, my stepdad told stories of his service in Iraq and Kuwait. As a child, I was fascinated by the impact regular people can make on world affairs. While not everyone has to be in the military, or even abroad to make a difference, it takes engagement and interest to jump start even the smallest effort in global affairs.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? Serving the world’s poor serves more than just the poor. Downsizing global poverty is an investment for the future of those at home just as much as it is an investment for those abroad. I am volunteering to serve the world’s poor because I want people to understand that the impact they make with The Borgen Project makes a real difference to millions of real people.
