What is your favorite travel site or project to visit and why?

My favorite project site is the ALFA project because this project gives out-of-school children a second chance at an education.

Why did you decide to work at Geneva Global?

I decided to work with Geneva Global because of my great admiration for philanthropists. I dream to be one myself one day.
