Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

The excitement of finding new alphas and quantitatively researching market behaviors is what substantially motivates me to pursue a career in finance, especially in quantitative investing.

I have been playing the Erhu for over 15 years and held my own concert in college.  This experience forged me into a disciplined and conscientious individual, while also being ingenious and innovative.
