How did you get interested in global issues?
Growing up, I was always fascinated by geo-political and social issues. This led me to pursue my undergraduate degree in Economics and a master’s degree in International Relations. I realised that true change can only occur when we begin to shed light on some of the biggest issues facing our world and by creating awareness, we are taking the first step towards finding a solution to these problems.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
We are all aware of how poverty is a grave issue facing every country on this planet of ours. However, I believe that the vast majority of us do not realise how deep-rooted poverty is in some of the other major issues facing us. Throughout my master’s degree, I learnt and understood a lot more about how poverty has a direct effect on not only geo-political issues but also other major issues plaguing our society. I believe that it is important for more people to understand poverty from a multidimensional perspective and this is what is motivating me to volunteer to serve the world’s poor. I am also motivated to serve the world’s poor to ensure that people understand the humanitarian side of poverty because more often than not, we think of poverty as just a term rather than something that has a real impact on the lives of millions of people across the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am someone who enjoys watching sports, reading books, and occasionally listening to podcasts on history and politics! Here are a couple of random facts about me: I speak four languages and I have a dog named Hyper!
