Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? When I was volunteering in the Philippines, I witnessed poverty first-hand. My first night in the city of Manila, I saw a woman and her three kids living on the streets in an alleyway. The children were sleeping and the woman was sitting on a dirty mattress with a look of defeat and sadness. I told myself that night that if there was something I could do to help people like that woman and her children, I would. I believe that The Borgen Project allows me to do just that.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I want to make an impact on those less fortunate than me. I was blessed to live in a place that gives me opportunity and allows me to live my best life. I’m aware that there are others around the world that are not as fortunate, and I want to help those that don’t have the resources to live their best life.

Any interesting tidbits to share? I love to travel. I’ve been to six countries, and I’ve been to 40 of the 50 states. I play the guitar and have been in several bands that played shows in the Omaha area.
