How did you get interested in global issues?
Living abroad! My family lived in several different countries around Europe, and this sparked my interest in work that is global. I have always been passionate about social justice, and an interest in global issues was a natural blend.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I see this as my opportunity to “be the change.” Through a combination of my studies, my travels, and my personal values, I am motivated to use my education as a tool to pursue work rooted in promoting equity. I recognize my time at The Borgen Project as a unique opportunity to do just this.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I was able to study abroad in Quito, Ecuador and take classes towards my Spanish minor!
