First job: Founder, Borgen Project

Second job: Room service attendant

Why I do it: I run an advocacy organization that addresses aspects of global poverty. That's the day job. The night job is working at a hotel delivering room service. I do that about four nights a week, typically from 3 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. I live in a small studio apartment and it covers basic living costs. I'm treading water until I get another job.
