Angel Jiminez

Discipline, responsibility, organization and hard-work are values that have helped me out a lot in becoming a successful student.

So let me guess, you think I’m a math whiz? Not at all!  I became interested in accounting for many different reasons. First and foremost, I enjoy accounting because of the interaction and involvement in people’s everyday lives.  In multiple cases, accounting allows you to form long term relationships with the clients you help.  And what I appreciate most about the accounting profession is the constant opportunity of intellectual growth.  This profession is very broad, yet essential to business you can never learn enough. 

I’ve always been big on family, which is exactly where I’ve developed my core values over the years. In my personal life, responsibility has an umbrella effect causing both organization and hard-work to prevail. Being able to organize assignments, projects and personal leisure time is very important in college. Also, without hard-work and determination while aspiring to achieve a goal makes things really difficult.

All in all, I consider myself to be a real “go-getter.” I love to challenge myself academically and physically during this pursuit to become a successful accountant. This summer I am interning at a local tax firm which has presented a few obstacles along the way, however the personal growth through hands-on experience doesn’t compare. I believe that great things come to people who work hard to reach their goals, and the rewards are priceless. If you can identify a few morals that have direct inspiration in your life, then success is only a matter of time.
