Accounting was not the first career choice that I had in mind when I started college. I did not have any idea what I wanted to do initially. What finally sparked my drive to pursue this path was the fact that, at its core, accounting is about helping businesses and helping the community. So many people’s investments, futures, and plans depend on a few pages of numbers and information. As I learned more about the accounting field and how important that role is in the world of business, I saw it as the best way to use my knowledge to help those around me. After college, I am going to work full-time for EY in their Kansas City office doing assurance work, and I plan to move into industry a few years after. I want to go into the video gaming industry because I have always loved video games and I want to be apart of the process of bringing these amazing experiences to the masses in my own way.
During my college careers, I have done a variety of activities such as being apart of the Beta Alpha Psi accounting fraternity, the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity, as well as being a teaching assistant for two accounting courses for information systems like SAP and teaching students the basics of excel. I have also interned with EY and was able to work on some interesting clients and got to see what the actual audit process and work is like.
