Accounting / Germantown, MD

What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
The educational system has advanced more than I expected. I love to live and study in the friendly environment UMD has to offer. Also, it is very convenient for me to study at UMD at Shady Grove, because it is very close to my home.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I plan to be a CPA after I graduate from the University of Maryland. I want to be a professional accounting manager in my future working fields. I love numbers and I am always detail-oriented, that is the reason why I chose the path of accounting. Accounting is amazing!

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I volunteered helping older people during the COVID-19 pandemic by helping them to shop for groceries.

Which programs are you enrolled in, and what have you gained from your experience in them thus far?
I learned a lot in the Business Association in USG and gained useful knowledge. I also become a member of AICPA where I learned a lot about accounting, which can help me get prepared for my CPA exam.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I want to do more volunteer activities and build up my leadership skills at UMD. This can help me in the future working in professional roles.

What are your future goals after graduation?
I plan to take the CPA exam after I graduate. I also want to get my MBA at UMD.
