How did you get interested in global issues? I got interested in global issues from watching the news everyday and by participating in Model UN. These issues were complex, and I always had a passion to solve problems. Overtime, I learned about issues the world faced and had a passion to study and learn how different cultures and different peoples interacted with each other through globalization.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? Through being interested in global issues, I developed a sense of public service. I believe that it is important for me to explore how much I could possibly do to contribute to public service. Also, I spent the first years of my childhood growing up with my grandparents in rural China. It showed me the different standards of living and how the people in poverty lived tougher lives than that of the rich. This persuaded me to volunteer my time to improve the lives of those who experienced what I did when I was a child.
