I am a determined university student interested in contributing to sustainable finance. My interests within sustainable finance include ecology, sustainable energy use, food production, and climate change topics.

PROFILE

I’m currently in my final year at the University of Technology Sydney, and I’m undertaking a Bachelor of Business majoring in Finance and Economics. I hope to contribute to promoting climate-conscious projects and investments in the Finance sector in the future as my career progresses. I am passionate about animals and have always had an interest in learning about them, so I’m especially interested in topics associated with ecology.
