How did you get interested in global issues?
I learned a lot about the state of higher education in Africa through an internship at another non profit organisation and decided I’d like to learn more about the state of global affairs, mainly to do with developing countries.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
The opportunity to write about global affairs feels like it would be an eye opening and rewarding experience. I’d be making a tangible difference, in that my work would be used to educate and inform the public on issues to do with global poverty in a way that offers solutions. Representing Borgen would be a great chance to advocate for a change through first-hand experience with members of parliament, I’d be mobilising the government and resetting the agenda towards issues that not only affect my country but the world!
Any interesting tidbits to share?
Paretos principle states that for many outcomes 80% of the consequence comes from 20% of the cause, so when solving a problem, doing 20% of work towards it, solves 80% of the problem. With this in mind, if we were to mobilise even 20% of parliament, donate 20% of the fundraising goal, advocate for 20% of the world, we’d be doing 80% of the work it takes to end global poverty!
