My Wellesley
Zoelle Mallenbaum

Zoelle Mallenbaum ’13

I am a senior economics major at Wellesley, originally from New York.

I am excited to be an Adam Smith Fellow, and even more excited about what this fellowship brings to the Wellesley community: intellectual diversity. In my experience over the last 3 years, professors and students often gloss over, dismiss, or ridicule Libertarian, free market, individual-rights concepts.  These are the concepts that shape my beliefs.  I can't wait to delve into these concepts in an academic setting, and to research how and why they are systemically glossed-over at liberal arts colleges like Wellesley.
