Most Cherished ESS Moment
Advice for Future Econ Students
Promoting ESS at the Activity Fair and share with freshmen about all the cool things going on in the community! We got 50+ signups, among whom we recruited new executive members who are superstars to the team! If you want something, ask for it (and work for it), the worst case is getting a no but you will never know until you try it.

Rusha Majumder

Rusha was born in Japan and raised in the United States, but is ethnically Bangladeshi. Upon entering college, she was a pre-medical student who says that she made it a goal to explore opportunities outside her comfort zone. After exploring several research positions and internships across different subjects and industries, she decided to pursue investment banking instead of medicine.

Most Cherished ESS Moment
Advice for Future Econ Students

My most cherished ESS moment was the last meeting we had. Despite the meeting taking place over Zoom, our last meeting was a sweet moment for all of us. It gave us a chance to thank each other and celebrate the accomplishments we each had. Saying goodbye to everyone made me even more grateful for the opportunity to have worked with fellow economics students who are passionate about growing ESS and demonstrating how interesting, multifaceted, and useful economics is through our events. I am so glad I chose to be a part of ESS for the last four years!


Do not let anyone's idea of what your life should look like guide your college experience and career aspirations. It is important to create and pursue your own goals so you can be true to yourself. Explore activities, classes, clubs, hobbies and internships that are interesting to you, but also make sure you create a realistic career plan along the way. It is okay if that plan changes. Good luck!
