How did you get interested in global issues?
Global issues interest me because of the way one issue has very different all over the world. Being of two completely different backgrounds allowed me to experience firsthand, the economic differences from one country to another. Without a strong economy a state begins to lack in human necessities, struggle begins to appear in their healthcare, infrastructure, etc. These disadvantages are evident when a global issue arrises. For example, during Covid-19 developed countries with well-established healthcare systems did not have too much hassle when it came to taking care of patients with the disease. However, developing countries had a great strain on their facilities and as a result could not cope, resulting in a great amount of deaths.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I have decided to volunteer my time because as a citizen of the west I believe that we have a moral obligation to offer our help to the world’s poor. I don’t believe it is fair for us to be selfish with our resources. Furthermore, aiding countries will benefit with an ally in the future.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love travelling and hiking. Both together makes me a very happy person. Exploring the natural beauty the Earth has to offer is one of the most peaceful and relaxing things for me.
