I have a vision of a world without poverty and a world where women and children can live safely and happily. Born in a developing country (Sri Lanka) and growing up in a developed country (Australia), I have experienced both cultures and this has fueled my enthusiasm to make an impactful difference in whatever way I can. I believe we all have this enthusiasm and as global citizens we can make a difference together.
