My name is Macheddie Baker and I graduated in 2021 from Seattle University in Economics and Development. While I finished my major at the age of 19, I spent additional years pursuing minors in math, French, and international business. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a research assistant under international political economists, and am looking forward to pursuing economics at the graduate level. When I'm not taking classes or tutoring, I enjoy painting, hiking, and traveling to new places. I am excited to meet other academics and participate in the AEASP for a second year.
