Name: Yvonne Nguyen
Location: Salem, OR
Position: Advocate

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I got interested in global issues because I have come to a realization that global issues, such as poverty, are large problems, and I want to do whatever it takes to be a part of the solution.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because, one day, I hope to open up my own business to encourage people to donate and contribute to help end poverty. I believe this advocate position can help me get experience, plus, it will get me one step closer to my goal.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

  • Writing
  • Volleyball
  • Bilingual (fluent English, fluent Vietnamese, and currently taking French in high school)
