Selin Ozturk

Name: Selin Ozturk
Location: London, United Kingdom
Role: PR/Marketing Team Member

Fundraising Goal: £400

How did you get interested in global issues?
I studied Law for my Bachelors degree. When we were learning about Human Rights Law the matters always caught my attention and I started to investigate more.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
We can not choose where we were born or who our family is going to be. I am lucky on that side and I feel like I need to help the unlucky people.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a ballerina. Even when I was in college I tried to be part of charity work. I gave food to homeless people with an organisation. And I became part of the Pro-Bono team in my school, where we helped people who did not have any money to go to lawyers.

My Compassion/Humility List
I will do the following for any friends and family who donate in my honor.

  • £25 – Cook dinner.
  • £30 – Dog sitting.
  • £40 – Baby sitting.
