About Me

I am currently a senior in my last semester at Purdue University. I have studied a wide range of academia, and will come out with two degrees to show for it: Bachelors in Accounting/Business Management and in Philosophy.

The direction I want to take includes working at a think tank that focuses on the implementation of global or national, economic or social policies to better the lives of citizens. If not for a think tank per se, then part of a great nonprofit organization such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
