When I was young, I went to Ghana with my family for three weeks. Since then, my understanding of the importance of clean water has grown immensely, and ensuring people have access to it has become a passion of mine.
That’s why I’ve partnered with PureMadi, an organization that focuses on delivering clean water to South Africa. I’ve also begun to work with the Waterboys organization — dedicated to bringing well-water to needy people in East Africa — which was founded by fellow Virginia grad Chris Long.
Ever since I left Ghana I’ve wanted to make a difference — I’ve wanted to do something about the poverty I saw there. My five years at UVA opened my eyes even more to the world around me. I’m incredibly proud of the steps we’re taking to bring clean drinking water to communities throughout Africa.
