Hello everyone, I am a PolEcon and Data Science Double Major in the Economics Column. Hailing from Panama City, Panama (not Florida), I believe I can contribute a more global perspective to BRB. Within BRB, I hope to write about global macroeconomic issues like supply chain issues, monetary policy, and fiscal infrastructure! My hobbies include boxing, playing soccer, and writing about anything that interests, ranging from poetry to economics columns 😴. Fun fact is I wear crocs a lot.
