Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

A career in finance can offer me a great opportunity to work with diligent professionals, find ways to improve myself and employ my analytical skills in the workforce.

What makes you unique? I have been writing Chinese calligraphy since I was seven years old. The art not only offers me great handwriting but also helps me remain peaceful and handle pressure effectively.
