Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues by reading about the news or watching it on TV. In today’s age of technology, we have the most convenient tools to stay educated of the issues plaguing the world around us, and I always do my best to stay informed on global challenges and what can be done to overcome.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time because I believe that global issues are all people’s issues. For example, girls’ access to education in countries beyond the United States comprises a massive part of the fight for gender equality worldwide. If we support gender equality in the United States, I believe that we should be willing to fight for gender equality all over the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a junior at Emory University studying Political Science and Creative Writing. I love to write, read, find new music, and spend time with my family and friends. When I was in the 5th grade, I won the school spelling bee with the word “tutu.”
