For me accounting is personal. As an immigrant, life has seldom been easy. It has been marked by continuous sacrifice, unfamiliar settings, and unnerving trials. From an early age I witnessed my parents painstakingly keep track of their income and expenses in order to make ends meet. Such trying moments were the early signs of my inclination towards accounting. In essence, these painful experiences stirred something within me, something that culminated into a passion. After exposure to numerous accountants and academic courses, I was firmly convinced accounting was my calling. In pursuing my calling, I attended Miami Dade Honors College and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Accounting. Afterwards, I transferred to Florida International University, where I hope to acquire my Bachelor of Accounting in April 2018.

In the competitive world today, having a college degree might not benefit a student as much as before, thus opening up numerous questions concerning its necessity. Not only is the number of students desperately trying to enroll in college increasing, but the tuition shoots up as well.
