What is one of your mottos in life?
“It’s okay if you don’t know right now, because later on you will learn.”
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?
It’s a difficult question but I would have to say Betty Cooper from Riverdale. I never expected myself to be so similar to her but I understand how the character feels on the show. Similar to Betty, I try my best keep a positive and optimistic attitude but there are definitely situations that can knock you down. She usually attempts to solve the problem herself, just as I do because I attempt to be independent, but we both realize later on that asking for help and having support from family and friends can also help solve our problems.
In your opinion, what is the scariest interview question you have been asked or can be asked?
Do I have to pick one? Because I’d be nervous the entire interview… Jokes aside, I get nervous (not scared) when I am asked, “Tell me about yourself.” Even though I will be asked this question in every interview, I am always learning aspects about myself that I never knew. To summarize my personality where the interviewer can understand that I am the best fit for the role in 1 or 2 minutes is difficult.
If you were lucky enough to win the lottery, what would you do?
If I was lucky enough to win the lottery, I would probably do what everyone does – PAY MY TUITION. My parents have sacrificed so much for my brother and I and paying tuition is just one little thing I can do to help them. Other than that, I would definitely set aside some money for myself for post-graduation to get settled in adulthood (and as I write this I realize that it’s in 3-4 years) and also donate to any organization that needs my help.
Why did you become a part of AOA?
Being an associate last year, I saw the family dynamic within AOA and I am not kidding when I say this but I WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED FIRST YEAR WITHOUT AOA. The organization provided me with multiple opportunities to grow in my position but most importantly as a person and that is something I never expected as a marketing associate. Now, being the marketing director, I would want to give that familial and comforting feeling to the first years as they are going through the high school to university transition. By sharing my passion for accounting and AOA, I hope to give the same impact to the new associates as AOA has given me.
