I graduated with a B.Soc.Sci (Hons) in Economics from the National University of Singapore and am now a research analyst. I am also a savvy tech enthusiast, cyclist, bookworm, Arsenal fan and also a semi casual gamer.
I chose to major in Economics due to my beliefs and interests. In my experiences at school and at home, I have embraced efficiency. I come from a relatively poor family and have the privilege of being involved in most family decisions from a young age. With limited resources, quick cost effective decisions have to made on a daily basis. Being exposed to such from young shaped my growth and my final decision to pursue Economics as my major. In terms of areas of economic applications, I have both interest and experience in labor, transport, technology and development.
I am now a full time research analyst focused on current affairs and international relations.
