I transferred my major from Electrical Engineering to Applied Operations Research at Cornell because my real passion lies in Finance. My undergraduate study demonstrates my technology and leadership skill by leading multiple projects. Last summer, I took an internship at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, where I worked for the International Finance Department, also I helped the bank with Private Wealth Management, and I realized that financial expertise is highly demanding in China nowadays. This summer I served for the Wall StreetE Financial Service in the Wall Street as a stock broker, and I realized my potential in this sales position because of my communications skills with clients.
