About Chelsea White

Chelsea White is the Social Media and Communications Fellow at Global Citizen. She studied Social Work at NYU, and has a strong interest in Human Rights issues and Street Art. On first dates she's often told she's "interesting" or "a different kind of girl" which are compliments...right?

Why Chelsea White is a Global Citizen

I am a global citizen because I don't think it's naive or a pipe dream to believe in social justice and equality for all. These things are achievable if we all work together to create a better world.
