About Sunnie

Sunnie just graduated from Yale University with a B. A. in economics. Within the field, she is particularly fascinated by the interconnectedness of environmental sustainability, economics and happiness. To explore this specific area of study, she designed her own Yale course on “Happiness and Economics,” wrote her yearlong bachelor thesis on “Assessing the Economic Value of a Positive Work Environment” and attended the first UN Higher Level Meeting on “Happiness and Well-Being: Defining a New Economic Paradigm” in April 2012. In 2010 she spent a semester working for ESU-services Ltd., a life cycle assessment (LCA) consultancy in Uster, Switzerland which taught her the importance of life cycle thinking for sustainable development. Since the beginning of 2012 she is also a member of the Youth Innovators Council of The Mycelium School, an international program which endows the next generation of leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and address root causes of social and environmental concerns.
