Name: Zack Barnett
Location: West Chester, Pennsylvania
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I got interested in global issues through my international relations courses at Penn State University. As I have progressed through my Political Science major, I have become more and more fascinated with the global community and the relationship between countries and people on an international scale.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I feel extremely lucky to be born in the United States with access to all the opportunities that I can imagine. I feel like my generation takes these things for granted and doesn’t realize how blessed we are. I believe that it is my duty to try and make an impact on people across the globe who are not as fortunate as me. I want to raise awareness in order to address these fixable problems across the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Not sure if these are very interesting:
I lead a very active life; I spend most of my weekends playing in hockey tournaments or traveling the state snowboarding. I also love Philadelphia sports with a passion, Go Birds!
