About Me: I am first generation American student. Over the course of a semester the McNair Scholar program has been able to foster and guide my academic goals. I am most interested in Behavioral Economics because I enjoy understanding the incentives that motivate a person’s actions. In the fall, I will be applying to MA programs to further enhance my academic career goals.
