I am currently a rising sophomore at Baruch College pursuing my degree in Accounting. At Baruch, I am a part of Phi Eta Sigma Honors Society and Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity. I was born in Staten Island and I am fluent in Albanian and English.
My goal after completing college is to pursue my MBA in Accounting and become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I recently graduated from Streetwise Partners, where I participated in a selective 13-week career development and mentoring program focusing on improving professional competencies such as networking professional etiquette, job search skills, interview preparation and MS Office proficiency. I am also passionate about youth development and I recently worked in the special education field, tutoring an autistic child. Some of my other interests include traveling, camping and playing soccer.
As a Fellow, I look forward to developing a close relationship with my Mentor Coach, sharpening my interview skills, and expanding my professional network. It is an amazing opportunity to have a whole team of professionals, a Mentor Coach, the 2014 Fellows and the America Needs You team working to prepare me for internships that will help me develop the skills needed in the accounting industry.
