I have a huge amount of interest in the business field, especially in financing and economics, which makes me to have intense desire to take my future on it.

In 2008, one of the biggest American investment banks – Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. Many people around the world lost their wealth on its bonds. One victim was my grandfather. He lost part of his savings in this incident. I fully understood that there are always risks in investments and I want to minimize it. Therefore, since then, I wished to be a financial adviser in my career.

To achieve this goal, I selected Business as one of my electives in hugh school. It gave me background knowledge in financing and I believe it can help me to equip in preparing for my future.

Economics is my another elective. At first, I chose it just to assist my studies on Business, but I was totally attracted by it, particularly the macro-economics. It taught me how the business world change. Therefore, there is also huge desire for me to study economics in my future.

Many friends describe me as an analyst, since I have great analysis skills. I love playing bridge in my spare time starting from my childhood. It helps me to train my analysis skills, which I believe can help me in my studies in both subjects.

Having good problem-solving skills is also an advantage for me in studying in these subjects.   In my high school life, I have joined the IT Prefect team, where I needed to solve lots of problems for my schoolmates. The experience of organizing the Elderly Academy can also trained my problem-solving skills as we have to create all equipments for the classes. These experiences can surely help equip me with problem-solving skills.

I hope I can turn my interests on the business field into my future career. Therefore, I have set a career goal to engage in marketing research and service business. With the personal qualities I process, I believe I can be successful in my future career.
