What are you studying?

Accounting.

Why did you want to become a CA Student Rep?

I plan to become a CA and thought I could help out other students along the way, because if I have some questions, I'm sure they do as well. Also students will feel quite comfortable asking a student than someone in a higher position.

How would your friends, family or a colleague describe you?

Can be shy at first, but once you come say "hi" it's all good. Really relaxed and a good listener for sure. Willing to help anyone and everyone in any way possible.

What you are interested in outside of Uni and work?

I do alot of volunteer work with all ages. I love getting to know people around the world, their culture and how they are doing. I love travelling and recently attended Golden Key's International Conference 2017 in Sydney. I love giving new things a try, especially if it's outside my comfort zone, because that's where success lies.

Tell me how you first got involved in with accounting/business, what inspired you?

Curiosity to what it is that makes people get such amazing jobs that allow them to travel the world.

What would you tell someone who is thinking about studying business/accounting?

Just it a try, it gives you a chance to look at things and think differently.
