Name: Victor Vera
Location: Brooklyn Park, MN
Position: Human Resources Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? I was always aware of global poverty because I saw it firsthand. When I discovered the main helper of downsizing poverty was The Borgen Project, I was eager to help out.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I am always ready to help out the people in need, because some of “those people,” are my people. And, instead of just helping some, I want to help all.

Any interesting tidbits to share? Soccer is my passion. When I have free time, I love to breakdance.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. $100: Breakdance in front of a high school
  2. $50: Hit the crossbar with a soccer ball from half
