Aniqa Premjee C'20

Economics and Political Science Major; Economic Policy Concentration | Global Intern at Finance Startup in Singapore: "My internship experience helped me gain a deeper understanding of what I want to do in the future. I was able to test drive a career without having to make any serious commitments while also being able to further sharpen and hone the business skills I have already possessed and learned in my classes at Emory. Not only did it allow me to see what it would to be like to work in the business industry, it provided me with real life experiences, lessons, and tools that I need to get a full-time career in the finance field."
