Name: Talal Derbas
Location: Houston, Texas
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,200

How did you get interested in global issues?
I believe that keeping a closed eye on global threats facing our world today will one day haunt us. Poverty is one of the main causes of the destabilization we are having in our world today.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe poverty is a thing we should try our best to end. Nobody deserves to be in that position, and we as humans, should not watch other humans suffer.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I enjoy playing soccer, working out and running.
