Through 4 years of History and Politics (from the beginnin of mankind till the latest elected president), 2 years of International Relations and now intensive studies in finance and economics I have found the field I have passion for, the field where I can and I will apply my diverse knowledge and skills and this is the energy industry.

Number one is "Investing in Energy" by Professor Ballantine, followed by "Transnational Negotiations" with Professor Cohen, and then very intensive but so crucial, "Applied Macroeconomics" with Professor Osler
Best extracurricular activity related to my career:

Best place to explore in the Boston/Cambridge/Waltham area:
Boston starts with the Prudential Tower with its Sky Walk tour, where you can enjoy the 360 degree panorama of Boston the Beautiful, and then...Boston Common for the best fall picnics and open-air theater performances in August, Newbury Street for lovely stores, Quincy Market during Christmastime and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Cambridge- definitely Harvard Square
Best advice for First Year students?
Stay open-minded and don't miss an opportunity to enjoy the experience. Every day. And yes, move!
