Name: Nona Ratia
Location: London, United Kingdom
Role: Political Affairs Team Member

Fundraising Goal: £1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
My main motivation is my background. First of all, I was born and raised in Ukraine, the country that has been experiencing conflicts and political intability. My parents have grown up in Georgia and fled their home due to the military tension between Georgia and Russia. I have chosen to face the problems instead of running from them and it sparked my interest in understanding and addressing global issues.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Witnessing the devastating effects of war, inspired me to take action and make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I’m a professional dancer with 10-year experience, practice skiing, pilates, yoga and jogging, engaged in drawing and design, intrested in psychology and history.
