How did you get interested in global issues?
Global issues are things that can become ignored, especially growing up in a self-serving country such as the United States. The Borgen Project goes above and beyond to help serve the world’s poor – no better way for me to become involved!

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Growing up, I have lived a life where I’ve never had grave worries about money, food, water, etc. Having this background, I feel as if it is my turn to give back to people in poverty across the globe, hopefully making an impact in the lives of others.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I’m a Junior at the University of Michigan, and I love my school (Go Blue)!
