How did you get interested in global issues? I became interested in global issues because I realized the disconnection between worlds: the worlds of others, yours and mine. Traveling as well as studying International Relations abroad has opened my eyes to the many issues the International community faces, such as human rights issues, health issues, and economic hardships. This realization sparked my interest to get involved and if we all commit and connect to create change, we can begin to eliminate the global issues that we face.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I think that it is time I step up. Growing up in a developed nation, we take a lot of the opportunities that we have for granted. I believe it is important to take the opportunities that I have been given to help others. We all have phones, laptops, and connections to others, so I plan on taking these resources and what I believe in to downsize global poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share? I had the amazing opportunity to study politics and international relations at the University of East London. Through my course, I found my passion for International Relations and helping others; the reason why I decided to join The Borgen Project in advocating for global issues.
