I was inspired to dream big
"Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not". This saying of George Bernard Shaw unexpected sprang in my mind after closing the book ''Shoe dog'' which is the autobiography of Phil Knight - the co-founder of Nike whose logo ''Swoosh'' has become an icon for youngsters. I was inspired to dream big by Phil Knight's recall of his path to success after a long decade; however, this path was not full of roses but contained countless failure to an extent that sometimes he thought that he had had a bankruptcy. His story was such an expensive, yet invaluable lesson for me about the importance of having a solid foundation in global economy, financial management and taking calculated risks in achieving sustainable business.
Aspired to give back to the community, I was a part of an English teaching program for children in a mountainous region in Vietnam and a wall-painting project at a public primary school in Cebu, Philippines while having a one-month summer camp here. Throughout these volunteers, my sympathize told me that study Economics & Finance could be a solid foundation for me to do the poor a favor by invite more injections from the government in education for religious children who may become a high-qualified labor force to contribute to the economic growth in the future.
After pursuing the Bachelor of Economics and Finance, my long-range career goal is to specialising in investment and risk management. All of my efforts, both in and outside of university, are intended to make a positive impact on my community and to better equip myself for an ever-changing society with the skills and experiences essential for undertaking future initiatives successfully.
