Lucia

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I am studying Business Accounting at Humboldt State University as a sophomore. My parents immigrated at young ages, my father at 6 and my mother at 17, from Mexico. Since both are diligent leaders, I have fortunately gained that characteristic from them and reflected it in whatever I encounter. Although neither of my parents achieved higher education, my father built his business 22 years ago which lead me to grow up in a business setting. Both my parents are perfectionists in their field and deliver nothing less that what they would expect for themselves. Their achievements so far have been such a privilege to experience.

I am extremely interested in Accounting, but also marketing and Entrepreneurship. I hope to work at one of the top 5 accounting firms after my studies. This stems from my high school finance courses and visit to KPMG, where I learned what a day for an accountant would look like. I loved the idea of being able to apply my attention to detail and teamwork skill to my daily job. This would also allow me to interact with like-minded individuals and collaborate on a professional level.

I truly am furthering my education, not only for myself, but also for my parents. I hope to one day be able to provide for my mom and dad like they have provided for me. The amount of support I have received throughout my short 19 years has been incredible. I am so excited to be introduced into the internship world and to be given a mentor that would help me stay on track. It is no longer just me, but every single person who has ever assisted me. I will graduate college and walk the stage for every single one of you.
