Peruvian-American raised and residing in Hudson County, NJ. I live right across Manhattan so you might have seen me at EA-NYC events.
Undergraduate in Economics and minoring in mathematics at Rutgers University-Newark. Associates of Arts Cum Laude from my local community college, where I focused on economics and mathematics.
I am currently looking for summer internships:
•working for Congressperson who works on foreign affairs in DC.
•A think tank focused on foreign affairs in DC or NY.
•Undergraduate research assistant in economics.
I first heard about EA through the Peter Singer TED Talk on YouTube and gradually went down the EA rabbit hole during quarantine in 2020. I kind of fell off and would donate 10% of my paychecks here and there until Sam Harris interviewed Toby Ord and got me thinking about dedicating my career and education to EA cause areas.
Some personal non-EA things about me: I love to play and watch football (I’m sorry, soccer), penny board around NYC and my neighborhood, try cooking some new vegan dishes, and read books.
Looking forward to more meetups at the Dim Sum venue! By the way, on the avenue next to the White Castle in Journal Square, Jersey City there is blocks of Indian restaurants with excellent vegan and vegetarian options! (I tried every restaurant there by the time I graduated from Hudson County Community College a couple blocks away, haha.)
