About Paul Abernethy & Global Citizen

I'm ashamed that we live in a world where extreme poverty exists. I think it's abhorrent that a persons chance of living a decent, fulfilling life all depends on where they are born. But to be a part of the generation that can end all of this is something that excites and motivates me. Together, we can do this, together we can put an end to this injustice, together we can end extreme poverty. This is why I'm a global citizen.
