Jude from Belgium turned to his peers from around the world to help him make a video raising awareness about hunger. In turn, he discovered the creativity and passion of students like him working to solve hunger – and hope for the future. He wrote this essay to share how the experience inspired him to keep making a difference.
Each month, our online interns from around the world create an online advocacy project to engage their communities in solving hunger. They challenge their friends to tournaments on Freerice.com or create photo galleries of people making a difference. This month, however, our online intern from Belgium is calling on you to help him take his project to the next level. He’s creating a video around his core belief that food is life. He can’t finish it, however, without first hearing from you.
“For me the most frightening aspect of the job is whether we do it well enough, because other people’s lives depend on it.” -- Jo Jacobsen, Junior Professional Officer from Denmark with WFP in Sudan.
We all have our own personal and powerful reasons for getting involved in solving hunger. Growing up, this month’s online intern discovered the importance of food and its inverse: the wide-reaching consequences of hunger. It’s this passion for food that drives his efforts to raise awareness on social media and that motivated him to become a WFP Student online intern. This month, he hopes to inspire students to imagine a world with food for all – and to do their part to help get there. Here’s how you can join him. Meet Jude.
