I joined SFU in September 2019 after finishing high school in Italy, and I am about to complete my third year in the program of Economics. I decided to pursue this major because I am a very curious person and felt like Economics could help me gain a better understanding of what drives people’s behavior given the circumstances and constraints they face.

After enrolling in many different economics classes, from microeconomics and macroeconomics to economic development, I developed a strong interest for the field of finance. In particular, I have been fascinated by the theory behind exchange rate determination and the impact it can have on a country’s international trade policies.

After my graduation, I plan to pursue a career in the field of internal auditing; for now, I have recently accepted a Co-op position at a Vancouver-based cyber security company and hope to gain skills to grow personally and professionally.
