How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve been interested in global issues since I was a freshman in high school. Becoming a history buff, a large part of understanding history is knowing how it applies to present day situations. Thus, global issues today tie heavily into these studies and have become of a major concern in my life. History often repeats itself, and unfortunately, modern day international struggles aren’t excused from that statement.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I’m volunteering my time in an effort to raise awareness of the disadvantaged states many places all over the world endure. While the United States has its own issues, the poverty that strikes across the globe is still an incredibly valid concern, as the world doesn’t revolve around just one country.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I’m a Professional and Creative Writing double major, along with a third in Social and Political History. When I was 16, I ran the campaign back home for people to vote for me in the 2036 US Presidential Election. While that dream is on hold, the hopes to help people worldwide hasn’t died yet.
