How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues after observing first-hand how decisions in places such as London & New York affected the lives of my friends and neighbours in Nigeria.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because they have relatively few people who are willing to stick up for them and I want to help make a difference.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I enjoy playing soccer & video games. I have a phobia of pigeons and can make music with my ears.
