What are you studying?

Major Accounting, Minor Business Information Systems.

Why did you want to become a CA Student Rep?

I want to be able to show others that having a career in business and accounting can be rewarding and fulfilling.

How do you want to make a difference in the world?

I want to make a difference in the world by working in an ethical organisation, and ensuring that they can work efficiently for their longevity.

What you are interested in outside of Uni and work?

I row surfboats for a local surf club, as well as doing patrol at the beach some weekends. I also play the drums in a band with two of my friends from school. I enjoy travelling, and since leaving school have gone on trips to Japan and Europe.

What are your career/life aspirations?

My dream job would be working as a Chartered Accountant within a large company, helping them to develop their business to best adapt to changes in technology and the impact that will have on all business functions.

What was your first impression of studying accounting/business?

My first impression of studying accounting was that of slight intimidation, due to having to learn a whole new system of data entry and analysis. Past the initial intimidation, I saw that accounting was challenging but could lead to a meaningful career.
