How did you get interested in global issues? I first got hooked onto global issues in elementary school when I started watching BBC World News. Since then, I have been in touch with global issues and chosen fields of study in Political Science and International relations. My travels abroad have added to my interest in global issues as well.
What brought you to The Borgen Project? I liked the organization’s ability to engage ordinary people in the global fight against poverty. It’s mind blowing that such a large effort and difference can be achieved with a laptop, internet connection, and the will of people to inform and work hard.
