Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    There is no interaction with others and all we do is deal with numbers.

  • How I responded:

    Although we do work with financial statements, which entails numbers, the math is elementary. The complexity of our work is truly driven by our expertise with accounting and auditing standards. We also learn different facets of a business and industry, and in turn, we experience how various companies operate their businesses. The numbers are utilized to depict the health of a company and its consequences.
