Now 31, Hugh has been passionate about eradicating extreme poverty in the world's poorest nations. "I really believe that if people are informed about issues of global poverty, they'll respond," Hugh says in this One On One interview. His goal is to build a movement to end extreme poverty and curate large scale campaigns at tipping point moments that can influence world leaders to do things that they otherwise might not be inclined to do. "I am entirely convinced that a well organized group of hundreds of thousands of young people around the world can change the world for ever," Hugh says. "I believe if we work together and are committed for the long haul we are going to see the end of extreme poverty in our life time."
