How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always had a drive to help the underprivileged. Be the voice of the unheard. This got me into volunteering and helping others. By becoming informed about global issues, I can identify ways in which I can make a positive impact, whether it’s through volunteering, donating to a cause, or supporting policies that address global challenges. Learning about global issues can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience that can lead to personal growth and development. By challenging myself to think critically about complex issues, I can develop my intellectual and analytical skills and expand my knowledge.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
By volunteering my time, I can make a positive impact on the lives of people who are struggling with poverty, hunger, and other challenges. Whether it’s by providing educational opportunities, healthcare, or other essential services, I can help to improve the quality of life for people in need. I can contribute to creating positive social change and addressing global challenges like poverty, inequality, and injustice. My efforts, no matter how small, can make a difference in the lives of others.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am known to be a good cook among my friends. I love to make Ice cream. Apart from that I am a national sports person. I find pottery and sculpting fascinating, however I am yet to try my hands on it.
