Name: Merna Ibrahim
Location: Elmhurst, NY
Position: Writing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? I became interested in global issues through stories my parents would share about poverty in Egypt and things I would see first hand on my visits there. As I got older, I began to do my own research on poverty around the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I’m volunteering my time because I want to combine my love for writing and human rights. I believe that through writing, we can create social change and awareness of the different scales of poverty around the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share? I love watching short films/documentaries. Also, I never learned how to ride a bike.
