I started my academic life as a general sciences student at the University of British Columbia in western Canada. My undergraduate experiences amount to medical research assistance in tropical skin disease treatment, leadership and organization in BC provincial politics, part-time job for a private international firm active in trade and non-profit volunteer experience at local level. My affinity towards economics was the main reason that brought me to MESCI and I am confident graduate training in development economics is the next step in my education. The interdisciplinary approach and the great student diversity of MESCI provides for a wholesome learning experience and I am looking forward the year ahead of us.
