Nico hails from the warm sunny island of Singapore and recently graduated with a BSc (Hons) from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She is currently pursuing her M.A degree in East Asian Studies with a political economy and finance concentration. Having interned at Singapore’s Central Bank and at a US investment bank, she remains fascinated by global financial markets and seeks to explore the rising prominence of East Asian market economies and its influence on existing socio-political global arrangements. Having danced her way through life in ballet, contemporary and jazz, she is excited to be competing with the Yale Ballroom Team this year. Outside the dance studio, you can find her backpacking, hiking, and travelling to far-flung places and meeting new faces. She extends a warm welcome to all Yale Young Global Scholars, and is excited to be teaching seminars in the fields of anthropology, social psychology, finance and economic policy.
