Name: Natalie Abdou
Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan
Fundraising Goal: $700
How did you get interested in global issues?
Being trilingual, and growing up in a multicultural Lebanese-American home, ingrained in me not only an appreciation, but also a dedication to foreign cultures and global issues.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I feel responsible to do my part for those desperately in need in a way that feels natural to me: through my writing.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am an avid reader of graphic novels and love being active by lifting weights, hiking and yoga. I am currently working as an adjunct French language professor at my local community college, as well as freelance French language interpreting on the side.
My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…
- Write thank you letters/emails/messages to each person who donates in my honor!
- Match the highest donation myself.
- Update them on my work at The Borgen Project to keep them aware of important issues.
