How did you get interested in global issues?

Learning about diversity and inequality has led me to develop a desire to do what I can to support those who need it most. I hope to work in the field of human rights in the future.

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

Having studied Geography at University and worked in a professional setting with those living in poverty within my own country, I believe we all have a responsibility to advocate for and support those less fortunate than ourselves. The Borgen Project campaigns for global poverty alleviation to be a higher political priority in wealthy nations and seeks to highlight the efficacy of development aid, which I feel passionate about.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

I have recently started doing pottery because I find it relaxing and enjoy being creative.
