About Odette Hutchings

Odette is the Canada Campaigns Manager at Global Citizen. When she’s not at the Global Citizen offices, she can be found running, biking, eating pizza and hoping to get invited to her friend’s cottages. Odette lives in Toronto and is obsessed with talk radio and podcasts.

Why Odette Hutchings is a Global Citizen

I’m a global citizen because I know that we can live in a world without extreme poverty. The issues are complex and so are the solutions, but when people come together to show that they want to see things change, we can make a huge difference quickly. The Global Citizen movement is about each person’s small action amounting to something larger and I love seeing new people get involved each day.
