Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

As a risk taker who is equipped with analytical and mathematical skills, I will flourish in the ever-changing and challenge the financial market.

What makes you unique?

I love backpacking and traveled to 14 European countries alone in my spare time when I studied at Leuven University in Belgium as an exchange student. Backpacking makes me independent, boosts my confidence, provides me with opportunities to meet different people, experience different cultures, and expands my horizons.
