I am third year student at Acadia University studying Economics and History. The combination of these two fields allows for a nuanced perspective and approach to social issues. I am writing an honours thesis on “The Left’s Various Policy Reactions to the Financial Crisis of 2008” using both historical and economic analysis. As a Project Manager for Enactus Acadia I am trying to start a social enterprise called Project LESS. My team and I are using entrepreneurial methods to work on the issue of single use plastics and their detriment to our community. I also work to promote youth entrepreneurship as a Company Program Mentor for Junior Achievement Nova Scotia. I work in a team to support a group of Grade 9-12 students in the creation of their own company.
