How did you get interested in global issues?

Being raised in Argentina by Indian parents and having lived in metropolitan cities like Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, and London made me a global citizen. I was introduced to the concept of globalization subconsciously, and thereby became a longstanding advocate of global cooperation.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?

I truly believe that caring for someone across the other side of the globe is a responsibility rather than a grand gesture. The world’s poor should be a concern for all, and the world leaders the first ones to advocate for systematic change.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

I am obsessed with dogs yet my mom is absolutely terrified of them so I was never able to have one. Accordingly, back home, I volunteered at a dog shelter and started to work with 30 dogs, 12 cats and 3 chickens at once.
