Flynn Grace

What are you studying?

Accounting, Economics, Finance.

Why did you want to become a CA Student Rep?

I have a keen interest in the financial world and CA ANZ will help bring me closer to accounting employers.

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

I would like to help educate small business owners on the financial advantages of understanding the accounting side of their trade.

If you had any advice for your fellow students about tackling university or preparing for the 'real' world, what would it be?

Life is as easy as you want it to be. Taking on extra challenges is optional, but the reward is always worth the effort.

What was your first impression of studying accounting/business?

I realised that although business and accounting is not a subject that is given much thought in New Zealand colleges, it is a core sector of the economy and should be at the forefront of peoples considerations for future employment.

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

In my year 12 summer I decided to try and make some money by importing and selling Vietnamese silk dresses at the Nelson Saturday market. The exercise brought out a business oriented passion in me and I have followed that ever since.
