Caroline B.

My name is Caroline B. and I am entering my third year in Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto where I specialize in Finance and Economics and have a minor in Geoscience. Relevant courses I have taken include Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Econometrics and Data Analysis, Microeconomic Theory, and my favorite, Macroeconomics. Apart from my academic studies at UofT, I am the Director of Operations and Investment Analyst at Rational Capital Investment Fund, a student-run fund that not only actively manages a portfolio for our investors but focuses on teaching UofT students the fundamentals of finance and investing. During my time with this club, I have taught classes on reading financial reports and interpreting economic events to first-year students. Apart from this, I also gained teaching experience in high school as I was an assistant coach in the CanSkate program where I taught those new to figure skating and hockey how to skate. These experiences have ultimately been rewarding and fulfilling to me as I continuously look to share my interests and skills in the subjects and sports I love. In my free time, I enjoy watching/playing tennis, baking, and spending time outside.
