Name: Rina Welch
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I was always a world citizen. Empathy and the privilege to travel and live in many places made me passionate about making the world a better place. All the work I have done for communities I have lived in or visited is drawn from a genuine love for other people and our surroundings.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Much of the injustice in this world targets those living in poverty. I believe people deserve better honestly. Beyond that, I believe in people’s potential if they are given the right opportunities and resources. I believe that addressing poverty is the biggest investment we can make in creating a better world for us all.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I was a Pre-Med, Linguistics and Dance major before permanently changing my major to Political Science!
