Position: Writer

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues? As a political science major at the University of Washington, I constantly hear about global issues in the classes that I take.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I am volunteering because I am passionate about reducing poverty and economic inequality throughout the world. I figured that the best way to accomplish this goal would be to help an organization committed to combating international poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share? I can put one leg behind my head. I am also a basketball, football, and soccer fan. I used to play the trumpet.

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

  1. Provide a 10-minute-long rap freestyle for $25.
  2. Jump in Lake Washington at 5:00AM every day for a week for $25 (a video of the jump will be sent each morning).
  3. 3 round-trip car rides around the greater Seattle area for $100.
  4. A 5-minute back massage for $5.
  5. A 10-minute back massage for $10.
  6. Smiling for 10 minutes straight for $15.
  7. Make you a delicious sandwich for $30.
  8. I will memorize a random paragraph from a book or speech for $25.
  9. I will give 110% on the basketball court during a pick-up basketball game for $5.
  10. I will never forget your full name for $3.
