Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

I find it fascinating how different political, natural or social factors can affect the financial industry. By working in such a dynamic field, I hope to explore the rules and patterns of finance while utilizing my quantitative and analytical skills.

What makes you unique?

I have been doing volunteer work since high school. I learned to make plans, organize events, and most importantly, communicate with others, which helped me to be open to different perspectives and supportive of goals bigger than my own.
