My motivation for co-founding WILL WORK FOR FOOD came from hearing President Clinton speak at the University of Michigan. He talked about how our world is unequal and unstable and how our generation is facing daunting challenges like fighting malnutrition and poverty. Although these issues are unsettling, he also provided a spark of inspiration by recognizing that with how connected the world is today through the media and internet, our generation has a greater potential to solve these matters by being 21st century global citizens. Citizens that not just help others in our own communities but also commit to providing relief to those in need around the world. It was from this idea that the Will Work For Food "volunteering locally to save children globally" initiative was born. I am excited to help give students an opportunity to volunteer in their local communities while raising relief funds to fight childhood malnutrition abroad.
