Fundraising Goal: $500
How did you get interested in global issues?
My high school government class sparked my interest in politics. In my formative years, I recognized my privilege and have since been using it to stand-up for what I believe in. Studying Political Science has allowed me to expand on my interests and develop a career in it.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because I believe people around the world deserve a voice. No one should grow up without clean water, an unreliable access to food, an education, and/or basic health requirements, while there are billionaires making nearly 5 million dollars an hour. As the wealth gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow, it’s important that there are people advocating for basic needs.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love plants, hammocking and reading!
