Peruvian-American raised and residing in Hudson County, NJ. I live right across Manhattan so you might have seen me in EA NYC events.
Undergraduate in Economics and minoring in mathematics at Rutgers University-Newark. Associate in Arts Cum Laude in Liberal Arts '22 from my local community college, where I focused on economics and mathematics.
Career interests (in order): global health, global poverty, policy, and governance domestically and internationally. I would ideally like to intern at a think tank focused on international relations and government, e.g., my Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez,
I first heard about EA through the Peter Singer TED Talk and then went down that rabbit hole. I kind of fell off and would donate 10% of my paychecks here and there until Sam Harris interviewed Toby Ord and got me thinking about dedicating my career and education to EA cause areas.
Some personal non-EA things about me: I love to play and watch football (I'm sorry, soccer), penny board around NYC and my neighborhood, try cooking some new vegan dishes, and read books.
Although I don't see myself dedicating my career to AI or factory farming I consider them both top priorities as well (I'm vegan) and looking forward to learning more about AI safety!
EA internships and fellowships in economics and journalism, career advice, and scholarships.
Make you laugh and be a friend. :) Also, I can offer advice from the knowledge I've gained from articles, podcasts, and talking to professionals in my EA areas of interest.
