How did you get interested in global issues?
My father, who is a Palestinian refugee and my mother, who lived a very hard life here in America, taught me to not only be empathetic towards the struggles of my fellow people, but they also emphasized caring for those who are different from myself. My deep seeded need to help does not stop at our nation’s borders.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Our world’s greatest failures stem from our greed and apathy. Those who are hurt most by our vices are the most poor in developing nations. While I move forward in life and find myself at an interesting crossroad, my free time should be used to help all those I can via The Borgen Project.
