How did you get interested in global issues?
During high school, I had some of the most wonderful Spanish teachers who exposed me to the beauty throughout Latin America and Spain. Although I was only required to engage in a mere three years of language instruction, I felt an obligation to put forth a more profound effort in engaging the Spanish language and its many cultures, especially considering the unfortunate fact that others are expected to understand my own. Despite the feats of science, art, and humanity I had witnessed in my studies, I simultaneously learned of the extreme poverty and crippling debt experienced by many Latin American countries. I felt heartbroken by the global inequality that became increasingly apparent to me, and I consequently sought to shed some of my ignorance surrounding the topic.

In pursuit of a deeper understanding of the world outside my own country, I am now working toward a major in International/Global Studies at Elon University, from which I have become fascinated with the complexities of international politics as well as gained more acute awareness of the United States’ enormous influence in the international system. I am convinced we can use this power for good.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Time and time again, Warren Buffet has expressed that to be born in the United States is to win the lottery. I feel so fortunate to simply be born in the position I am in, and I would be remiss if I did not use it to prompt meaningful, positive change for those who do not have the same privilege. It is simply the least I can do.
