A “dedicated learner,” the economics major took every opportunity to stay on the leading edge of her academic development, from taking on challenging coursework to being a peer tutor. “I enjoyed being a mentor, and I also think that teaching is the best way to learn,” she says.
As a junior, Jannet served as a research assistant with economics professor Dr. Rebecca Moryl, helping to manage her website, audioecon, a searchable library of economics-focused podcasts to aid in student learning. She took the helm expanding the site’s social media presence, as well as documenting and analyzing the effects innovative teaching methods have on understanding of in-class concepts. The assistantship also resulted in co-authorship on a paper published by The Journal of Economic Education in September 2019.
Jannet’s “proudest accomplishment” took the form of a fund analyst internship at global financial services firm Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH) during summer 2018—a distinction earned by less than two percent of applicants. “There were more than 4,500 applications for 60 available positions in the U.S.,” Jannet says. “I was the only intern selected for my team.”
