Shoshanna is a sophomore in the Wharton School studying Business, Economics and Public Policy. She’s from Maple Glen, Pennsylvania, and considers Philadelphia her second home.
Especially focused on the intersection of technology and public policy, she’s fascinated by the way that entrepreneurship can lift communities, and hopes to study the ways that policy can encourage and leverage innovation. Shoshanna is a member of the Wharton Entrepreneurship Club and the Penn Social Entrepreneurship Movement, as well as the Penn Debate Team and Penn Democrats.
Outside of school, Shoshanna is interested in social entrepreneurship and building tech scenes, passions she got to pursue while working at the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce, startup ROAR for Good, and Philly tech non-profit Philly Startup Leaders. In research, Shoshanna is passionate about finding “low-hanging fruit,” policy ideas that help to build consensus across disparate perspectives through innovative thinking and research.
