Name: Meghan Speckman
Location: Birmingham, AL
Position: Public Relations/Marketing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $650

How did you get interested in global issues?
Global issues have always been something I’ve been interested in, even if I never made it apparent to those around me. I think it’s essential for us to be informed about the world we live in, even if it means putting ourselves outside of our comfort zones.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I recognize that a lot of issues both domestically and worldwide need to be addressed as soon as possible; however, it always seemed that I, a 20 year old living in Birmingham, AL could never really do enough to impart change. However, I recently stopped believing that misconception, and I was tired of being frustrated for sitting idly on my hands not doing anything. In an attempt to use my passion and assertiveness for good, I applied to intern for The Borgen Project, so I could stop complaining about our world’s issues and start doing something about them.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
If you know me at all, you know I’m a lover of all things Carolina Basketball, Chick-fil-a, Cookout, music, and my people. If you don’t know me, my name is Meghan Speckman, and I’m just a girl trying to survive in this crazy world.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. Write you a thank you note.
  2. Bring you a coffee or a fun dessert.
