Haysam Azhar

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself

I am in my penultimate year at Minerva Schools, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Strategic Finance and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics & Society. As part of Minerva, I will be travelling to 7 cities around the world, spending a semester in each, solving global problems in local contexts. I have worked for Youth Climate Leaders in Nairobi, Kenya and Wanted.jobs in Seoul, South Korea in the past. I am a wanderer who loves road trips with the Lumineers playing in the background!

What have you learnt from your time at E Co.?

I have been lucky to be part of a diverse range of projects in my time with E Co. These projects have enhanced my understanding of climate adaptation and mitigation project design and have given me a sense of what international development in this area looks like. On a more personal level, working here has been a process of self-discovery. I have changed my major to Strategic Finance and have become interested in learning more about the crucial role that Climate Finance has to play in solving the world’s single biggest existential threat. My next goal is to become a better team player and an effective listener.

If you were world leader, what’s the first thing you would change?

As a world leader, I would help ensure everybody has an equal and fair chance at making it big!
