I started studying the stock market when I was 14 years old. By the age of 21, I had 6 digit assets under management and generated a return of 40% in less than a year. As a consequence, I was able to personally finance my studies in Boston and London.
When I was 17, I was accepted for HSBC's dual study programme which has an acceptance rate of 0.8%. I studied Banking & Finance and worked in 14 different teams for Europe's biggest bank. After finishing my Bachelor's Degree with recommendation letters from both HSBC and my professors, I worked for a consultancy. Next, I joined Harvard University for a course in Economics and Philosophy which I passed with the best mark possible (A), postgraduate credit and a recommendation letter.
Following this, I went to SOAS (ranked 4th globally for Development Studies) to start a 1 year Master of Science in International Finance and Development Economics. In my dissertation, I collaborated with the University of Oxford. Due to my high marks, I got various recommendation letters and worked in two research jobs. In one research job, I worked on a green finance model under the supervision of Dr. Gregor Semieniuk who is the lead author of the Emission Gap Report of the United Nations. In the other research job, I dealt with fintechs under the supervision of Dr. Adeline Pelletier who holds a PhD from London School of Economics. Then, I worked as Entrepreneur in Residence at Hanse Ventures, the biggest startup incubator in Northern Germany before I started at the Berlin based finch RIDE.
