Fun fact: On numerous occasions, I've had dreams about differential equations.

Hey! My name is Shady Yassin ('22). I was born to Sudanese parents in New Jersey but grew up in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). I am ecstatic to be a part of this program! My interests lie in the intersection between Economics and Political Philosophy, specifically how the works of different philosophers are interpreted and used to govern the society we live in today, from both a moral and economic standpoint. I struggle to pinpoint why I'm interested in this area of study; I just find it fascinating! My hobbies include listening to music, ice skating, and my favorite of all is talking and meeting new people!
