Why Murphy McAnulty is a Global Citizen

Having spent most of my life in developing countries, I'm incredibly aware of the unneccesary injustices that exist in the world. I am also aware that together, we can end these injustices. Engaging all levels of society allows for a restructuring of barriers that keep people in poverty. I truly believe that we can see an end to extreme poverty in our lifetime, which is why I am a global citizen.
