Name: Thais Gobbi
Location: Tampa Florida
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I am a sociology major and the majority of my classes revolve around the stratification among race, gender, socioeconomic status- all involving the poor.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am a first-generation American; my family are all originally from Brazil. Brazil is a country that is still developing with a lot of poverty. When I am in Brazil, I see first-hand, how many people suffer with poverty, and I would love to do something that could make a change.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love to travel, try different foods, and experience different cultures.
