Hello, world!

“Hello, world! Here I am!”

I stole this catchphrase from a great friend of mine, but it is appropriate because he’s the very person who invited me to write on this blog. This is my introduction post. I am here to tell you a bit more about what my interests are and what you can expect to read from me in the future.

My academic focus is on development economics and foreign policy. I’ve written a published thesis on foreign aid and plan on continuing my research and education through a phd program. I’ve traveled across the world competing for a U.S. sports team. I’ve interned with grassroots NGOs. I feel strongly about social issues, especially those that disproportionately affect women in both the first and third worlds. I may be the most passionate economist (in training) you have come across!

Have I sparked your interest?


Until next time,
