Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues? I have always considered myself a compassionate and empathetic person. During high school history class, I would always sit and think to myself, “The U.S. is so powerful, why aren’t we doing more to resolve world issues?” It was then that I realized how important it is to follow global issues and research how one individual can have a huge, lasting impact.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? World poverty is a critical issue that is easy to forget about because it does not affect some people’s daily lives. I think it is vital to remind myself and others of how extensive of an issue world poverty is and how everyone can play a significant role in eliminating it.

Any interesting tidbits to share? I enjoy photography and traveling. A random fact about me is that I went to a performing arts high school.

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

  1. $100: Cook you dinner from scratch
  2. $250: Run a 5k race
  3. $500: Plan your birthday party
