We are celebrating over 3,200 unique visitors from 60+ countries! We have successfully interviewed economists from leading universities such as the University of Chicago, Columbia University, Duke University, London School of Economics, among others.

I am Anushka, a seventeen-year old from New Delhi, India. I am deeply intrigued by economics and consistently strive to delve myself further into the subject. I consider myself an enthusiastic public speaker, reader, and writer. Owing to my passion for economics and research, I head the Trade and Economics department for the International Youth Politics Forum, am the Founder President of my school’s Literary Club, the COO/Co-Founder of a social enterprise in my city, and have a TEDx talk to my name. When I am not interviewing economists or studying organic chemistry, you will find me obsessing over pepperoni pizza or scribbling down poems in my room!

I had the incredible opportunity to attend the Politics, Law, Economics (III) session of the Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) Program last summer. One way the program stood out for me was in being able to interact with my professors and instructors over special meals, over lunch, and after class. Coming back from YYGS, I wanted to make such professional insight more accessible to high school students like myself. Especially as the world is becoming more and more connected, I believe this interaction to be very important for intellectual dynamism.

With this initiative, I sincerely hope we can break down barriers and move towards a more informed society; and I hope this platform serves to fulfil students’ appetite for economics research and insight.
