From
a very young age, I have been in touch with the world of business as my parents
own a restaurant. Through the company of my parents, I have understood the
importance of managing money and the power that the money has. As time passed,
it became clear to me that the people who understand how to control the money
are capable of guiding the company to success. I wanted to become one of those
people and the course of accounting and finance would help me to achieve my
objective.

My
enthusiasm for accounting and finance started from an application that helps
you to manage the money. Through this application you could clearly see your
inflows or outflows. Besides, you could also compare your financial situation
of other years. Thus, I started to ask myself questions like how do multinational
companies control cashflow? How do they know the amount of quantity needed to
be sold in order to earn a profit? I was increasingly curious about aspects
related to this topic.

I have developed several skills during my high school
years that will help me in this field. The subject of maths has made me develop
a logical method of thinking and improved my analytic skills. Besides, I have
become a more organized person as during my high school years we have a lot of
projects to do. On Saturdays, I have to attend to Chinese class from 10 am to 5
pm. Sometimes, I also go to the restaurant to help as a waiter which has
improved my communication skills. I have also become a more observant person which
will help me in the future to find out the problems that the business might be
facing. Furthermore, I have worked as a cashier and I develop some accounting
skills such as knowing how to do a balance sheet for a real business. Therefore,
it was very important for me to learn to manage my time effectively. I believe
that with these skills I am well prepared to take a degree course in accounting
and finance.

 

My year abroad in China has made me become a more independent
and responsible person. As a prefect, I was in charge of lots of tasks such as controlling
the order of the school, making sure that everyone was wearing the uniform
appropriately and following the school rules. During this year, I also became
more patient through practicing ink brush and painting. Thanks to my patience,
I was able to develop an artwork in which I won the third prize.

 

Studying
the IB program has given me the possibility of choosing the subjects that I am
truly interested in, above all Business Management and Economics which have served
to strengthen my interest in the commercial world. Economics is essential to
understanding how the world works as it is the social science that studies
human behaviour. In the subject of business management, I have learnt a lot of
new concepts and through this subject, I have strengthened my interest in
accounting and finance.

Furthermore,
the project of the cafeteria that was organized by my class helped me develop
my teamwork skills. It also gave me an overview of how a small business works
and how different departments work together to come up with the final idea. In
which the money earned in the cafeteria was donated to Turkana.

My
aspirations after finishing the course of accounting and finance would be to
work in a multinational company as an accountant. In order to achieve my goal,
I plan on taking internships in different countries during my summer breaks to
gain more work experience and to understand different cultures. I believe that
my language skills will help me to achieve my goal as I know how to speak
fluently in Spanish, English, and Chinese and also have a working knowledge of
German.
