How did you get interested in global issues? After reading a book titled, “How to Spend $75 Billion to Make the World a Better Place,” in which the world’s top economists found that the most beneficial thing the world could do for itself would be to end malnutrition and mitigate global poverty, I found myself enamored with the fact every country wasn’t doing absolutely everything they could to assist people in poverty. Not only would it benefit the impoverished, but it would greatly benefit the countries who provided aid, as well as boost international relations and the global economy.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? Along with the numerous benefits it can have for the U.S. and its citizens, I believe it’s important to help those who are less fortunate. It’s a moral imperative and it makes for happier individuals, including those who are helping. It improves relationships and creates an overall stronger global community.

Any interesting tidbits to share? According to Oxfam, it would take around $60 billion annually to end extreme global poverty… less than a quarter of the income of the world’s top 100 richest billionaires.
