I am a Global Citizen because I believe that it is possible to achieve a world where all people have access to quality food, education, and economic opportunity regardless of their race, gender, socioeconomic status, or nationality. I think that voices in number can achieve great influence, and am committed to working away from division and towards collaboration.
