Why do you want to pursue a career in finance? I enjoy fast-paced and challenging work environments where I can always push myself to my limits and apply my quantitative and programming skills. 

What makes you unique?

I have been playing the piano and accordion since the age of four, and have achieved the highest level in both. Spending my adolescence mastering these instruments has molded me into a persistent individual, who constantly strives for perfection.
