What is one of your mottos in life?
My one motto in life is the words of Mahatma Gandhi, which is, “Live as you were to die tomorrow, live as if you were to live forever.” I love this quote because it explains how one should always have fun with life and really live by the words YOLO, but in the end of the day, in whatever you do, there is still room to learn and grow.
If you could compare yourself to a character in a TV show, movie, etc., what character do you think is most similar to you and why?
If I were to compare myself with any TV/Movie character, it would have to be Eddie Kaspbrak from the movie IT. In the movie he is the weird, most logical and dramatic person among his friends which is, for the most part, me as well. I’m the friend who makes the scenes in public and would freak out over the smallest things. Additionally, I consider myself to be the comedic relief among my friends yet also the person who constantly thinks their always starting drama. And just like Eddie, if a killer clown was trying to come for me, I would be the first person to pack my bags and hitch a ride to the other side of the country.
In your opinion, what is the scariest interview question you have been asked or can be asked?
I think the scariest question that I have been asked is, “Tell me about yourself?” Although this is the most standard question asked at an interview, I still get anxiety from hearing the question. This is primarily because, I, one, don’t know what they want to know about me because it’s such a huge topic since I’m not just a name, position or school and two, I myself haven’t “soul searched” enough to even know myself and answer the question to its full extent.
If you were lucky enough to win the lottery, what would you do?
If I were to win the lottery, I would first give 10% of it to different organizations such as church and support causes that I stand for such as mental health and protection for abused women and children. Afterwards, I would treat myself and my family to things from cars to houses to clothes. For the rest of the money, I would probably save it or invest in some companies that I support and believe would grow.
Why did you become a part of AOA?
As being an individual who is planning to pursue a career in accounting, I personally wanted to connect with a community of like-minded individuals who are as passionate as me towards the profession. And in these few months that I have been involved with events and meetings, I can truly say that AOA is a group of people that are passionate, nice and super kind and I am personally so happy to call myself a part of AOA.
