How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always been interested in global issues, but felt as though they were too large-scale for me to ever play a role in combating them. As I grew older and had the opportunity to volunteer at places such as the King George Hospital in Lucknow, India, I saw first-hand the positive impact that just a small group of people can have on the lives of people in poverty, even if it isn’t financially. Since then, I’ve done my best to support organizations that are helping people across the globe, such as Islamic Relief which is aiding the Yemen and Sudan crises.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
3 billion people in this world lack access to basic human needs such as clean drinking water, education , health, and sanitation. I believe that active engagement with policymakers and supporting organizations such as The Borgen Project can make a significant difference in addressing global poverty.

What is the Borgen Project? 
The Borgen Project is a non-profit organization that believes that the leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. It is the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. They meet with U.S congressional leaders to secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation and build awareness of global issues and innovations in poverty-reduction methods. I’m raising money for The Borgen Project and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate a lot or a little.
Please let me know if you donated!
