My road in life has been direct.
Became the first person in my family to enroll at a college.
Chose to dorm to get away from the bad influence of my neighborhood.
Declared my accounting major because I loved math and thought accounting was figuring out formulas.

Came upon the auditing job at Mutual of America and decided to try another area of accounting.
Eight years later, still enjoy auditing.
