Name: Nicole Thompson
Location: New York, New York
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues after taking a prerequisite Political Science class at school. After two days of class, I changed my major and have been obsessed ever since!

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
There is simply no way that I, personally, can enjoy my very, very enjoyable life while knowing other people are suffering. Every bit of effort counts, and I am hoping to show others just that.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
My goal is to finish my PoliSci degree next year and then gain a Master’s in Human Rights to make an impact overseas, specifically Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and South America.

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

  1. $25: Give you a big shoutout for your donation and help!
  2. $50-$100: Donate 2 articles of clothing to those in need of it.
  3. $100+: Do an hour of volunteer work in the category of your choice (children, animals, environment, etc.)
