About Me

With a passion for economics, I have founded and managed the Global Association of Economics Education (GAEE) to promote economics education and financial literacy for students in developing countries. I am also an op-ed columnist, TEDx speaker and the first person under 18 years old to be elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
