Name: Reina Sawada
Location: Seattle, WA
Position: PR/Marketing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I majored in International Relations back in my home country and took many classes that taught us global issues especially related to women’s rights and maternal health.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am passionate about women’s health, and I am thinking of going to graduate school to get a master of public health. After that, I would have experience working for international organizations. So, for me, this volunteering experience is one of my first steps to achieve my goals.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Interning at Women’s Clinic in Seattle, playing tennis and exploring amazing Thai restaurants

  1. Any amount write thank you letter
  2. $50 Origami Cranes
  3. $75 cook Japanese food
