How did you get interested in global issues?

My parents and the rest of the family would watch the news together after dinner when I was growing up. On one of those occasions, I watched a television show about women who had to travel by foot a certain distance to a hospital to give birth. Some women were able to deliver their babies on time, but others were unable to. That aroused my curiosity? It was such an impactful documentary, and that’s how I learned to want to help out however I can.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Numerous economies have suffered as a result of the pandemic, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has also increased prices. Many emerging countries are in grave danger. Therefore, participation in advocating for foreign assistance to countries in dire need of basic human needs is now crucial and necessary for everyone. Adding my voice to the outstanding work being done by the Borgen initiative is a great place to start.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I was eleven years old when I learned that a particular name meant “defender of mankind,”. I fought hard right away to have my name be that name. It’s “SANDRA,” by the way.
