Sweksha Sharma is currently interning at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta as a Research Panel Coordinator in their Economic Research Department. She started the position in the summer of 2021 and continued it over the fall semester. Most of her work involves reaching out to business leaders to encourage them to participate in the Business Uncertainty Survey of the Atlanta Fed.

Sweksha said: “I get to talk to business owners and managers from all over the country which I really enjoy. This role has helped me understand the importance of survey work in economics and appreciate the role of the Federal Reserve System in the economy. My favorite part of the internship is being able to join in on economic briefings and forecasts where current issues are being discussed. It truly feels like I am at the center of economic decision-making! 

This internship has encouraged me to challenge myself and explore my interests. I am hence planning to study abroad next semester at the TIO University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. I am really looking forward to exploring the Netherlands and the rest of Europe while learning more about global markets, international relations, and my interests.”

Sweksha Sharma is currently a junior at ASC with a dual major in Mathematics-Economics and International Relations.
