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. Associates of Arts Cum Laude from my local community college, where I focused on economics and mathematics.
I am currently looking for summer internships:
•working for Congressperson who works on foreign affairs in DC.
•A think tank focused on foreign affairs in DC or NY.
•Undergraduate research assistant in economics.
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 undergraduate economics 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.
