Name: Zach Locy
Location: Seattle, WA
Position: Administrative and Operations Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
Through courses that I’ve taken and researching outside information on my own, I have developed a strong interest in issues that face the entire world, rather than issues on a local level. While I feel that both are important, I think that these widespread, globally connected issues are a more productive use of time for everyone involved.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time because one of the most important things that I believe in is an equal opportunity and chance for everyone in the world. If my volunteered time is able to give at least one person a better chance or opportunity, then I will feel satisfied with my work.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am very interested in all things outdoors; hiking, skiing, swimming and anything else that can keep me outside. I love to travel, but as of now, have only managed to see the United States (mostly all of them!) and Canada, with a few other places on my list this upcoming summer!

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

  1. For $50, I will bake you a cake.
  2. For $100, I will do your laundry.
  3. For $150, I will do one homework assignment of you choice.
