Vijeta Kashyap

Joined 13 months ago from Rawalpindi, Pakistan




I am currently studying Economics and have particularly enjoyed studying development policy and environmental economics. Also I’m interested by the idea of carbon finance, as the carbon emissions effect human development theoretically but the phenomenon is not proved by any economic model yet, the idea of relating theory with reality intrigues me.

My current career ambition is to find a suitable role within an international organisation, ideally UNDP, with specific focus on assisting people who have been working on issues of environmental economics. My favourite area of economics is development policy; I particularly enjoy comparing and evaluating the different strategies that the government can use for the betterment of masses.

I also happened to be a participant in the project of National Commission on Justice & Peace (NCJP) regarding conflict prevention. Later I undertook a questionnaire based research on Causes of Conflicts between Relationships, which was well appreciated by my teachers as the paper suggested the conflict prevention measures thoroughly.

I am the top scorer of my batch in Bachelors of Economics, and am expected to be awarded by a silver medal at convocation ceremony. At school, I have been an active member of my House, participating in various sporting competitions such as cricket, race, and tug war. Over the last two years, I have been engaged in Dramas and Plays and have performed pretty well in all.

I also have worked as an intern in the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE), a prestigious institute of Pakistan. In my practical training during internship I learnt various econometric estimation software such as Eviews, Stata etc. my writing and analytical skills were also upgraded, as I was given training on writing research paper and data analysis.

As an active member of my community, I was selected as minority community leader to promote equal social and political rights for the religious minorities of Pakistan. This work experience made me utilize the newly passed law “Right to information” to extract information from public organizations.

I am also a devoted reader and especially enjoy philosophical fiction, my favourites being Five people You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.
