Currently a graduate student in Economics at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, I was born in India and have been fortunate to have travelled since. Much of my adolescence was spent in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I completed high school. For my undergraduate studies, I moved to Tilburg in the Netherlands and graduated with distinction in Economics. The past 5 years I’ve lived in Switzerland. The beauty of this land and its people is not exclusive to Bollywood. During my time here I’ve worked in strategy in the electrical industry, as a journalist writing for the Huffington Post and ProJourno, a student researcher working on a project presented at the World Bank in D.C., and as a Trade Economist at the United Nations in Geneva. Here’s a more complete C.V. – Akash Arasu. When I’m not writing, I’m working on my pop-culture references. They don’t call it a quarter pounder in France?
