Name: Sylvie Macdonald
Location: London, United Kingdom
Role: Political Affairs 

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?

Have always been interested in politics since before university. Got involved in local canvassing and campaigning as wanted to engage with my local community. Once engaged within my local community I found that broadening my concerns for political action extended beyond a national sense.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?

In the simplest terms, because it can make a difference. I’m lucky enough to have been given an education and have attended university. I now want to utilise those skills I have gained to hopefully cause some kind of change in places were access to basic needs is limited.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

I love to cook, especially cooking for others and hosting people for dinner. I’ve also always loved film, particularly 1980s coming of age stories.
