How did you get interested in global issues?
I developed an interest in global issues after being fortunate enough to travel to a number of interesting and culturally diverse countries. I was able to see first-hand the effects of extreme poverty, famine, war and a lack of education, healthcare and sanitation. Even at a young age, I decided that I wanted to try and help people living in extreme poverty, which is one of the reasons why I became a journalist.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering time to serve the world’s poor because I want to gain experience researching and writing about human rights and international humanitarian law. I am very passionate about trying to utilise my skills as a journalist to try and improve the lives of others by spreading awareness of the devastation that poverty causes globally. I would like to not only highlight the problems, but shine a light on solutions, such as NGOs and green technology. It’s important to raise awareness of individuals and organisations doing good, as well as the situations in which they’ve gone to give aid.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
When I’m not writing articles, editing videos or taking photos, I like to have my head buried in a book. I enjoy reading about different countries and cultures, as well as politics and conflict. I am also a huge fan of being outdoors, and I enjoy going for long walks, swimming and horse riding. A random fact about me is that I am a huge fan of Doctor Who, and I have met several of the actors at comic conventions.
