“I first discovered my love of economics in high school. We learned about supply and demand, and it really helped to explain things on the news for me.”
After finishing high school in Italy, honours student Hamza Abdelrahman spent time volunteering in senior homes to help the elderly stay connected with current events. He also volunteered with leadership camps that taught young students about economics.
Abdelrahman's goal is to become prime minister of his home country of Jordan. An economics background, he feels, will provide a solid foundation for a career in politics. Other organizations that he would like to work for include the Bank of Canada, the Central Bank of Jordan, and the Royal Court Offices of Jordan.
