I am a junior in high school, and the most obsessed person you will ever meet in economics, international governance, business, history, philosophy, and learning how the world *really* works. My life is dedicated to the independent and absorbed learning of these disciplines. My specialties are macroeconomics, international political economy, and power networks in society. After receiving a B.S. in Economics, I intend to embark on doctoral studies on a Rhodes Scholarship, and work my way into the power elite, becoming a mixture of Rockefeller and Kissinger.
