I am currently a second year University of Melbourne Commerce student majoring in Economics and Finance with electives in Financial Accounting. My fascination in economics comes from how different economic concepts and various factors come together to play a vital role in the complex economy. I also feel that economics has a wide influence on people’s daily lives, yet a lot of the time it is misunderstood. In my spare time I enjoy playing futsal and first person shooter games, and I am currently heavily addicted to the TV show Person Of Interest.
