My name is Ola, I am a PhD student in Economics at Monash university Clayton. I am passionate about coffee and reading historical fiction novels. My favourite books are The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Counte of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I have just finished my first year of PhD and I found it more difficult than I expected or wanted it to be but it is so rewarding to be in an environment of intelligent thinkers and knowing I have all the advantages to write the best papers that will hopefully make meaningful contributions to society.
I have always wanted to start a vlog but I was hoping to get a really good camera first. For now I use my iPhone. I started this vlog because it is a creative outlet for me and I can document my time studying in Australia. I mostly do it to share with my family and friends but I hope it can be helpful to anyone considering doing a PhD especially in Economics.
