Carolina do Mascimento
Hi everyone! I’m Carolina, a 4th-year Economics and Business combined major, born and raised in Brasília, Brazil. My country and roots hold a dear place in my heart and I’m incredibly proud to be an international student here at Northeastern. I decided to study abroad after falling in love with Boston during a school MUN trip in 2017 and Northeastern was the perfect fit for me. After browsing through a few student organizations, I joined Women in Finance where I found a group of empowered, uplifting, like-minded women who inspired me to dive deeper into finance. Although a Marketing concentration, all my co-ops have been in the finance industry, such as Nasdaq, Wellington Management Company, and most recently Voga Invest | XP Investments, back home in Brazil. As a result, I’ve found my passion in the blend of behavioural economics and the world of investments. Outside the professional and academic scope, I’m very active and enthusiastic about fitness and a healthy lifestyle. Happy to meet everyone and welcome to WiF!

I am from the Bay Area, California where I attended all of high school and I absolutely love it there but I actually lived in Princeton, New Jersey up until then. I became involved in Women in Finance the semester I returned from my freshman semester abroad with N.U.in London and had the amazing opportunity of taking part in the 2020 NYC Trek, where I was able to learn a lot more than I thought I would about the finance world. This community and my trip further solidified my passion and excitement for WIF and all of the wonderful things to come. I was then given the opportunity to serve as AVP of Marketing during the Fall 2020 semester, and I’m thrilled to be able to continue serving on the e-board this semester alongside such driven women. In my free time, I love traveling and I’ve spent the majority of my life in competitive swimming just up until college.
