Name: Michela Rahaim
Location: Boston, MA
Position: Writing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $700

How did you get interested in global issues?
I started to get interested in global issues when I started to travel more. I became exposed to more cultures and different viewpoints and began to realize that it is a part of my job to raise awareness and try to help people who have less than me.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I want to help spread awareness about what is being done around the globe and how everyday people can help out. I am lucky enough that this internship grants me that opportunity.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I like to read, write and dance. If you catch me daydreaming, I’m probably thinking about the next place I want to travel.

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

  1. $75: Make you dinner (I promise I’m a really good cook. I have references if you need them.)
  2. $100: Wear an “I love [insert name here]” t-shirt for a week
  3. $150: Clean your house
