Global Challenge: Utilizing Big Data for Solutions
With new information and resources available to us, the structure of global governance and collaboration needs to modify its systems to encourage educated and more equitable decision making.”
As a Belgian/Israeli growing up in Singapore, I have been lucky enough to have extensive exposure to contemporary issues at both the local and global scale. This upbringing has led to an immense appreciation and passion for exploring cultures, and using the intersection of STEM and the humanities to tackle socio-economic and political dilemmas. I have followed this passion to an incubation competition hosted by tGELF and the UN, where my pitch for a modular sustainable housing unit targeting Goal 11 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals won first prize. Later as a university student, I also gained the opportunity to intern as an analyst for a Venture Capital firm that focuses on promoting projects which target both social and financial returns. This experience has taught me how to keep up with business trends and leverage them to help create transformative enterprises. I have carried this into my academic work by joining the Finance Impact Investing Team where I was able to practice creating valuations and pitch decks that consider a holistic approach to impact. In my free time I work on curating my growing music and art collection, finding new places to go scuba diving, and occasionally attempting to meditate.
