Peruvian-American raised and residing in Hudson County, NJ. I live right across Manhattan so you might have seen me at 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.
My career interests are global health, global poverty, biosecurity, and nuclear security. I would ideally like to intern at a think tank focused on international affairs (Council On Foreign Relations, CSIS), government (e.g., my Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez, Department o State, USAID, United Nations), and academia doing economic research.
I first heard about EA through the Peter Singer TED Talk on YouTube and gradually went down the EA rabbit hole during quarantine in 2020. 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.
EA internships and fellowships in economics, government, think tanks, and research. Also, some scholarships I should apply for to help pay for college would be greatly appreciated.
Make you laugh and be a friend. =D Also, I can offer advice from the knowledge I've gained from articles, podcasts, and talking to professionals in my EA areas of interest.
