Acerca de Paul Abernethy

Paul is the Advocacy and Campaigns Officer for Europe, and is the main point of contact for the UK Government/Parliament. Paul has worked in campaigns for 7 years, spanning both the international development and higher education sectors. Originally hailing from Liverpool (no, he doesn't know The Beatles), he can now be found wandering the streets of London, boring strangers with talk of politics. In his spare time he leads life that includes an unhealthy obsession with Marvel superhero films.

Por qué Paul Abernethy es un miembro de 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.
