How did you get interested in global issues?
I am a matriculating college student who is being educated to have a local, national and international focus on my perspective role as a leader. Consequently, it is imperative to be effective in any role being managerial or leadership. I must have a broad perspective on people, places, situations, and problems that the world need solutions too.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Someone once said, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” Therefore, as a matriculating college student having the benefit of higher education, in which only 12 percent or less of the given population of our nation have that opportunity, we must volunteer our skills and abilities to help solve some of the most pressing problems all over the world. It is necessary to give back to those who will never have that opportunity. In addition, as an African American male, the numbers of this demographic that are afforded the opportunity of a higher education is very small and shrinking. It is my pleasure to use my skills, knowledge and experiences gained throughout my life to help expand opportunities and alleviate poverty that is increasing in our communities and particularly those of color.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
My name is Nijee Brown, and I am a Information Technology student at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I enjoy doing all sorts of activities such as hiking, paintball, bowling, and painting. An interesting fact about me is that my favorite color is purple.

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

  1. Host a raffle game, and whoever is the winner gets a special gift.
  2. Pay my friends or family members my services, which include web design, gardening, car wash, computer configuration, mentorship, or donate to a charity of your choice.
