Madeline-Marie DOWNS YUEN


My name is Madeline Yuen. I’m 24 years old and I grew up in Hong Kong. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and a minor in Business Administration at Fordham University. After graduation, I spent a year at Fudan University studying Chinese and volunteered as a teaching assistant in Yunnan. It was during my time in China that I realised I wanted to use my degree to improve the lives of those in developing countries. I chose MESCI because of the wide range of modules offered and I believe this unique program will give me the necessary tools to help me in my prospective career.
