Name: Zoey Byers
Location: Seattle, Washington
Position: PR/Marketing Intern


How did you get interested in global issues?
As a student, I have become increasingly aware of the global challenges we are facing, and this has instilled a drive in me to make a positive impact on the world. I also believe that the ability to contact our elected representatives is a privilege that every American should take advantage of.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I feel a responsibility to contribute to people living in communities facing economical struggles because no person should be too poor to live. I also believe that we should strive to live in a world where countries are compassionate to one another and hold the interest of people over political power.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I play on my high school volleyball team and coach young girls in my spare time. I also love fitness and work part-time at a local gym in my community.

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

  1. $75: Cook dinner
  2. $100: Clean your house
