What global challenge(s) are you most interested in and why?
Domestic hunger & nutrition because the nutritional status of many Americans is very poor and effects the healthcare system, productivity, and so many other aspects of our country that costs us money. With proper nutrition and exercise the negative impacts of poor eating can be halted and many times reversed.
How can students at Auburn University contribute to the Leadership Challenge?
Join or create a club that addresses one of the global issues. There are tons of organizations on campus that work towards solving these programs, ex. ONE Campaign, Students for Education Reform, and Auburn Real Food Challenge. Getting involved with these help bring more ideas and increase the man power.
