Who am I?

My name is Kevin Edwards.  I am currently in my fourth year at the University of Akron.  Up until this semester, I was working twenty-five hours a week in addition to a full course load at school.  This semester, I have chosen to focus on my schoolwork, so I have taken a leave of absence from work in order to take on more classes at school.  When I have free time, I like to spend my time watching movies or reading comic books.  I have a slight interest in the world of comics and would like to someday be a part of the writing process for one.  I tend to be a very calm and collected person.  Although I have personal beliefs, I find that I am very capable of taking an analytical view on things.  I can look at a situation objectively and come to a set of possible conclusions, not all of which will match my own stances. 

My Educational Objectives

I am in the process of completing my degree in Economics.  I took an interest in economics during a Principles of Macroeconomics class.  I had a teacher that made the material very relevant to the world.  Since I decided to change to economics late in my education, I am taking a heavy course load over the next few semesters to try and finish close to the four year pace.  I’m confident that my focus and determination will allow me to take on this strenuous task without diminishing my grade point average.  At this point in time, I hope to either continue with classes and graduate by the end of Summer 2011, or find an internship. 

My Career Objectives

I have taken an interest in the money market aspects of economics.  Once I graduate, I think I would like the opportunity to work at the Federal Reserve or be in some similar scenario.  However, I do not wish to limit myself to that.  Given the difficult times, I would be willing to take on a career in almost any field in which my economic education could benefit me.  Even if my ideal situation is not a possibility, I would put forth my best work effort into any career track that I am presented with.
