Who inspires you?
The person that inspires me the most is my mom. She has been through so much to give my siblings and I the life we have today and completely understands me as a person. She has always supported my decisions about my life and career choices and I am forever grateful. She motivates me to be the best version of myself, to keep smiling and to always be positive. She built the strength and drive within me to tackle life’s obstacles. My mom pushes through the challenges that life gives her and overcomes them with patience and ease. She’s everything that I aspire to be as a young adult and a future mother.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What did you want to be when you grow up?
When I was 10 years old, I wanted to be a doctor or lawyer. I’ve had this strong interest in helping people in times of need and knew these two occupations held that at a high standard. I loved the different challenges that were faced in these two jobs, so it never seemed like there was a dull moment. Unfortunately now, I hate science with every fibre in my being and suck at debating, so here I am in business!
What do you want to make sure you do before you die?
I LOVE travelling. Although I have the strictest parents in the world that still won’t let me do many things (I still love them very much), I want the chance to explore different parts of the world. I’m an Instagram junky, so I’ve seen many aesthetically pleasing views in Australia, Spain, France and other countries. The idea of interacting with different cultures and trying various cuisines excites me and sparks my interest in what this world has to offer.
What do you want to accomplish on AOA?
As someone who is specializing in Accounting, I wanted the chance to increase my exposure to Accounting related opportunities on campus and expand my network. AOA is the perfect chance to showcase my skills, my passion for Accounting and provide the most information to those interested in this field and the CPA designation. Also, I wanted to make great memories with amazing people and know AOA is the place to be for that!
