Fundraising Goal: £400
How did you get interested in global issues?
I have long been reasonably politically active, having formerly communicated with my local politicians, alongside participating in regional events associated with lobbying. Equally, doing a degree in Geography has expanded my knowledge of people across the planet, and when combined with classes relating to international relations and policy, I have been increasingly interested in issues relating to the globe, and more specifically, poverty, inequality and development.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I feel it is becoming increasingly important to fulfill our roles as global citizens and both recognise and protect the worlds poor, as they have too long been overlooked. My time is the only cost I pay in volunteering to potentially make huge beneficial improvements in people’s lives, which, to me, you cannot put a price on. Ultimately, volunteering for The Borgen Project is an honor, and one that I hope shall be impactful for the sustainable development of the global impoverished population.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am currently a Geography student at the University of Manchester, having just completed a study abroad programme at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the US. I am a national level tennis player and I am bilingual, speaking both English and Polish!
