I immigrated to the United States from China to pursue educational and professional opportunities. Despite cultural challenges, I was able to complete an Associate’s degree in Accounting from Essex County College within three years of coming to America. I have since transferred to Rutgers Business School in Newark, New Jersey where I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting with a minor in Finance.
I am passionate about accounting, not only for its logical nature, but because it is truly a universal language that is crucial to the success of any business. I was able to share my knowledge of accounting with my fellow students while acting as a tutor at Essex Community College. It was personally rewarding to teach other students about a subject I care about deeply. After completing my Bachelor’s degree, I will work to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). As a CPA, I will uphold the highest ethical standards, as I understand and respect the importance of integrity and reliability in the accounting field. I am excited for the opportunity to apply my professional knowledge while making a positive difference throughout my career.
