Description

Introduction:

Hi! I am Angela and I am launching a new podcast that focuses on current economic and financial hot topics. Topic areas will include conversations on a mathematical approach to economics, financial freedom, personal finance. I am seeking a co-host to join me in exploring the financial world.

My Personal Background:

I am a Year 11 student studying in Melbourne Australia with a deep interest in the application of mathematics to economics. My interest in economics and finance sprouted from participating in the Wharton Global Investment Competition, Economics Olympiad Australia and completing an applied calculus online course taught me the mathematics behind economics and finance. I found this interesting and would love to popularize a mathematical approach to economics. My previous experiences include launching a YouTube Channel LogicaLing to explore the logic behind linguistics, achieving more than 16k views and 300 subscribers and initiating a teens online volunteering platform called Teen-Aged Program, aiming to develop cross generational bounds between aged care residents and teenagers; currently have more than 20 volunteers from 6 different countries.

Objectives and Goals:

We aim to help students learn economics/finance in a real-world context. Economics studies at schools seem unrealistic and emphasize writing and explaining concepts but lack real-world application. We wish to help students with an econ/finance interest to establish a realistic view of economics.
