How did you get interested in global issues?

I travelled with my parents when I was younger and saw first-hand the deprivation and poverty that was present across the world. It was for this reason that I first became interested in global issues. Combined with my university ‘Politics’ course, I realised that change was very possible.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?

I am volunteering my time to serve the poor because I have been inspired by the work that The Borgen Project has been doing. I found the simple and unique aim of trying to put issues of Global Poverty back to the top of the UK’s political agenda to be both tangible and compelling.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

I have a big interest in sport: predominantly Golf and Football.
