How did you get interested in global issues?
During my first year of college, I took a cultural geography class, which really made me interested in global issues. The course touched on countries from every continent, and the vastness and diversity of global issues really made me interested in learning more about what is being done to make a change and what more can be done.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
When I lived in India, I saw people who had experienced severe poverty first-hand. As a child, I felt like I couldn’t do anything to help. But now, as a volunteer for The Borgen Project, I feel like I can contribute to something that has the potential to make great changes for the better.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
From a young age, I have been fascinated by and interested in space. Currently, I am studying Earth and Planetary Sciences at University, and I hope to become an astronomer. I also have a black belt in Taekwondo!
