Name: Mohamed Osman
Location: Troy, MI
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
As someone who has a very keen interest in both Political Science and International Relations, I have always been intently focusing on numerous events as the unfold on the world stage, including the scourge of global poverty. I believe an area such as this would be an ideal place for me to be involved.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
To sit idly by as the least fortunate among us toil in agony and malnutrition is simply not an option. As Martin Luther King Jr. aptly stated, “In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Any interesting tidbits to share?
In addition to international affairs, I am also passionate about music, food, and sports. In the meantime, while I apply assiduously to jobs, I work for a local newspaper company.
