Richard Lee

Richard is currently a third year of Commerce studying Economics and Finance, on a minor detour towards (unsuccessfully) pursuing a professional basketball career in the NBA. His interest in economics was sparked during his junior basketball years, where he was disgusted with the exorbitant registration fees and believed that players should be paid for their talents; he knew little about labour markets back then.

The opportunity to join ESSA was attractive to Richard because it allowed him to further engage in the application of economics in everyday life, as well as share this appreciation with the wider community.

When not studying or training to be the next Stephen Curry, Richard enjoys annoying his friends with bad puns and looking for cheap substitutes to help get him through the #brokestudentlife.
