Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
Growing up in the age of rapid technological advancement, global issues have become very easily accessible no matter what platform you choose to use.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I chose to volunteer for this cause because I don’t think it is right for someone to suffer based solely off of the fact that they were born into that circumstance. For many people, poverty isn’t a choice and as a person who has had the privilege of not having to suffer in that way, I think it is part of my duty to use my platform and help in any way that I can.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I have several hobbies that I enjoy doing very much. Athletics wise, I love golfing, dancing and playing badminton. I’m also an artist, and in my spare time, I love to paint and even have a small paint business.

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

  1. Paint/draw you a picture
  2. Bake cookies or cupcakes
