What is one of your favourite quotes of all time?
“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” John F. Kennedy
This is my all-time favorite because it sends across the message that you do not have to be influential or wealthy to contribute to society and to help those in need. As simple as offering a genuine advice, one can make a huge difference in many lives.
If you could be anyone else who would you be and why?
I rather be myself. The reason is because I know myself very well and I do not think I know anyone else that well. So, I will not take the risk of becoming anyone regardless of whether they are a public figure, a friend or a family member. However, I will grab every chance to better myself as an individual. I want to create an identity for myself!
If you were lucky enough to win the lottery, what would you do?
Along with being passionate about accounting, real estate has always been of interest to me, so I would invest half of the money in establishing my own company. Furthermore, I would donate a portion of the money to different charity organizations. If possible, I would travel to a few under-developed countries, so that I volunteer my time to make a difference in the citizens’ lives. Moreover, the remainder will be used to travel the world, so that I can experience different cultures.
Why did you become a part of AOA?
As an aspiring CPA, the Association of Accountancy is an excellent platform for me to get involved in the accounting community, to apply my existing knowledge and to develop essential skills that will help me to succeed in workforce. Also, I believe that this club will give me the chance to provide opportunities for students to learn more about the accounting profession and the many pathways they can take to achieve their goals.
