Yaz Naji


yaz_naji Yaz is a Final Year Commerce student majoring in Economics and Finance. Wanting to follow in Paul Keating’s footsteps, Yaz has fostered a love for the application of Economics to public policy from a very early age (Year 11).
Yaz joined ESSA to raise the standard of economic dialogue around campus as he is a firm believer that economic analysis is vital to solving society’s biggest problems and should be applied to policy issues when possible.

As the President, Yaz is responsible for ensuring all the different portfolios of ESSA are working effectively, while representing ESSA to internal and external stakeholders. Despite his formal role, Yaz considers his main role to be as obnoxious as possible during ESSA meetings, consistently drawing the ire of his colleagues.

In his spare time, Yaz divides his time between obsessing over Italian football team, Juventus, and being a TV and film snob. One can often find Yaz preaching to his mates in a desperate attempt to get them to watch the critically acclaimed HBO series “The Wire”, (it’s just so real). Somewhat contradictory to this, Yaz considers comedy bands Tenacious D and Flight of the Conchords to be the magnum opus of Western music, closely followed by Cold Chisel and Fleetwood Mac.
