Name: Miriam Zallocco
Location: London, United Kingdom
Role: Political Affairs Team Member

Fundraising Goal: £400

How did you get interested in global issues?
Having lived in Italy, England and regularly visiting Nigeria growing up, I have directly witnessed inequality between high and low income countries, and I have always wanted to play my role in closing this gap and ensure that people around the world can have access to the same opportunities sustainably.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering to serve the world’s poor because it is a way to use my skills, knowledge and power to help people often neglected not just by their state but governments worldwide. It is the way I can positively impact people’s lives. Due to the nature of my university degree and my multicultural background, I am aware of the challenges the world’s poorest face and how these don’t just affect them but also have a negative impact worldwide.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love all team sport and I am a big football fan. I can play the alto and tenor saxophone. I love fashion and I was fashion coordinator for a production at my university. I also love music, drawing and travelling.
