Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I have always been interested in global issues for as long as I can remember. There wasn’t necessarily a certain event that triggered my passion. However, my urge to help solve global issues definitely strengthened when I had the opportunity to volunteer with newly arrived refugees in my community a few years ago.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because I am privileged enough to do so. Especially with the world’s hegemony, I believe that the United States does have a certain responsibility to care for the world’s people.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I will be graduating from San Diego State in just a few months with a degree in Comparative International Studies and minors in Arabic & Islamic Studies and Political Science! I am also incredibly excited to visit Brazil this summer to study inequality, activism, and sustainability.
