I was born and raised in Manhattan, New York. Growing up as a child of immigrant parents, the values of diligence, perseverance, and education were instilled in me at a young age. I feel very fortunate to be the first in my family to attend college and to be exposed to innumerable opportunities.
Currently, I am pursuing a degree in Accounting with a minor in Business and Liberal Arts at Queens College. Living in Manhattan and attending a business-focused high school sparked my interest in the industry. I aim to become a Certified Public Accountant, and I want to start my career at an established accounting firm. Additionally, my ultimate goal is to travel around the world and build schools to help others have the same access to the opportunities that I was given.
As an America Needs You Fellow, I will have support and guidance to not only achieve my professional goals, but also grow as an individual. Along with my current skills and the new skills I will develop through this program, I hope to make a lasting impact.
