Hi, I’m Nicholas (Nick) Nguyen, a rising junior at Pomona College. I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida by two loving, Vietnamese parents and have three older brothers! I am an Economics and Mathematics double major with an if-I-can-squeeze-it-in philosophy minor.
I believe it is the responsibility of economists to wield their knowledge wisely to inform the public of important issues. Personally, as a child of immigrants, I am deeply interested in the economics of immigration. My long-term goals are to pursue a career in academia and/or policy analysis post-PhD and to start an education outreach program to teach high schoolers the basics of macroeconomic theory so that they can better analyze government policy come future elections.
