Name: Sarah Clark
Location: Greensboro, NC
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues when I was in elementary school. Each grade level would raise money either by having bake sales, Christmas ornament sales, candy cane grams, or selling chocolate dipped pretzels to buy gifts on for people all over the world in need.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
People should not suffer due to the natural lottery or be disadvantaged by arbitrary factors. As John Rawls said in, A Theory of Justice, “The natural distribution is neither just nor unjust; nor is it unjust that persons are born into society at some particular position. These are simply natural facts. What is just and unjust is the way that institutions deal with these facts.”

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am majoring in Political Science and minoring in Philosophy. I am also starting my graduate program to earn my masters degree in Strategic Communications by May 2021.
