My name is Astrid Arias and I'm a sophomore double majoring in Economics and International Relations- with a track of environment and development and a regional study of Africa and the Middle East. I was born in Venezuela and grew up there and in Florida. I love traveling and experiencing cultures so I've traveled around Europe and Latin America. I hope to travel parts of South East Asia soon.
I'm very passionate about economic development and multilateral trade agreements, particularly during a time of rising protectionism across many nations.
