I was born in New York to Guyanese parents. Raised in a close-knit family, my parents shared with me the values of hard work and overcoming challenges. My father always said, “Things don’t come easy,” a principle that drives me to work hard in my daily life. My parents are my main source of motivation. They work hard every day to provide a comfortable life for my sister and me. I strive to mimic their work ethic as I grow in my career and hope to be as earnest as they have been.
I am currently a sophomore at the City College of New York working towards a bachelor’s degree in Economics. I developed my love for economics while taking an Advanced Placement Macroeconomics course in high school. I find economics extremely interesting, since we apply and see examples of it in our daily lives. I have an analytical mind, which helps me make strategic decisions in college projects as well as real-world issues. My long-term goal is to pursue a PhD in Economics which will allow me to satiate my curiosity as well strengthen my application of economic principles.
I am excited about my journey with America Needs You. I joined with the intention of enhancing my hidden voice by improving my ability as a public speaker. I hope to foster a successful relationship with my mentor, who will instill knowledge and confidence in me. I know ANY will be instrumental in my pursuit of personal and professional success.
