Leticia Pfeffer is the Global Policy and Advocacy Senior Coordinator for Global Citizen. She leads GC's girls & women policy campaigning, including the #LeveltheLaw campaign. Her background in development and international policy has fueled her passion for gender equality and female empowerment. Originally from sunny Miami with Mexican roots, you'll often find her eating spicy food and talking in "Spanglish".
The problems confronting humankind in the 21st century are incredibly profound and complex. These problems -- poverty, inequality, corruption, discrimination -- begin with, and end by collectively overcoming cynicism, apathy and complacency. I am a staunch believer in global citizenship. We all inhabit the same planet, drink the same water and are more interconnected than ever. Without a doubt, we must each do our part (no matter how big or small!).
