How did you get interested in global issues?
Leaving home to study in a university with a diverse yet close-knit international community has driven me to engage further with the world around me. By attending various student-led movements in support of issues in their home countries, I realised that there is so much that I can do with the talents and resources that I have, and I am not going to let them go to waste.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
The opportunities that I’ve been lucky enough to receive throughout my life should, I feel, be the right of every human, and it grieves me that this is not the case due to poverty. With The Borgen Project I have a great position from which to advocate the importance of eradicating poverty along the SDG, to some of our world’s most influential leaders.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
As a violinist of 10+ years, I played Turkish folk music for the first time in the Great Hall of Durham Castle this year, as part of a charity concert which raised £400 for the Turkey-Syria earthquake relief effort.
