How did you get interested in global issues?
Through exposure to my own family history of fleeing Uganda in the 70’s along with time spent with my grandfather who is has an avid interest in global affairs from his time in the Royal Navy.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Because I feel as somebody in an incredibly fortunate position I have a duty to try and help those with less, through any act big or small, it can have a impact on the amount of poverty awareness in the general Populus.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
My hobbies currently consist of hiking, being a avid railway enthusiast and volunteering at a local club for children with learning difficulties.
