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…
- $100: Breakdance in front of a high school
- $50: Hit the crossbar with a soccer ball from half
