I attended Texas Christian University, completing a Bachelor of Science degree in International Economics in 2021. During my undergraduate studies, I was passionate about examining the interplay between various factors that determine nations’ current stages of development and about designing policies to work effectively and efficiently in the long term. In addition to my studies at Global Thought, I want to gain more knowledge and build my expertise in finance because we are living in a fragile context of many events, including the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. Pursuing an M.A. at Columbia University is an excellent starting point for a career as a policy analyst, working as a researcher in academia in the industry’s research and development field, or in any consultancy and research organization.
