Anesha studied Economics at the University of Warwick. She is currently the Events and Admin Officer at Discover Economics.
Why did you choose to study economics?
I studied economics during my A-Levels, and I loved how it changed my perspective on many things. It showed me new ways of approaching different topics and ideas. I also loved how it helped me understand how the economy functions and how economics is present in your everyday life.
How would you describe economics?
To me, economics is the study of choice- how human beings behave, what affects their decision-making process and how they make choices.
If you had a time machine and could meet your 16-year-old self, what advice would you give them?
I think one practical advice I would have is to hone my maths skills because the degree involves a lot of maths and stats so that is always helpful!
What is your favourite part of economics?
How everything is interconnected! I enjoy thinking of the different factors that come into play when trying to answer the big questions and solve issues.
Is there anything you would do differently if you had the chance?
I would explore the different pathways that can be done with economics. I chose to study pure economics, but there are so many other options like PPE or EPAIS or even study it with a year abroad/a new language.
