Aberdeen Asset Management, Graduate Business Analyst - London, UK and Philadelphia, PA
Responsible for country economic and political analyses in the Emerging Market Debt team
The Fletcher impact: My Fletcher experience redefined the word "possibility" in my dictionary. With the help of a Fletcher alumnus, I had the opportunity to work on development projects at the World Bank. It is also with the help of the Fletcher network that I was able to connect with potential employers in different aspects of the asset management industry. Throughout the process of writing my thesis and taking classes at both Fletcher and Harvard, I was fascinated by the topic of sovereign debt -- the perfect juncture of economic, political, and legal studies. Needless to say, I incredibly excited to now work in this field.
Looking back on the Fletcher community: The most surprising thing for me about my Fletcher experience were the close and life-changing relationships I built in this tight-knit community. Now I have dozens of friends, who share my dreams to change the world, in every corner on this planet. My job now takes me to different parts of the world, but I truly feel at home with all my Fletcher friends no matter where I am.
