2016 KPMG Scholarship Recipient

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting at Georgia State University, J. Mack Robinson College of Business (RCB). I have always enjoyed working with figures, and becoming a Certified Public Accountant has been my goal since I really got into accounting during my first year of college. I became most excited about a career in accounting when I discovered the numerous opportunities in public accounting. The RCB staff at Georgia State University have excellent connections with companies in the accounting industry. After speaking with employers and completing my own research, I found that public accounting provides an enjoyable challenge, opportunities to learn and grow, and exposure in working with various clients and industries.

When researching career options, KPMG appealed to me as their graduate program would enable me to explore different areas of the business, encompassing audit, tax and advisory services. Also, KPMG’s reputation in
Bermuda assured me that this would be a great learning environment where I can receive a high standard of training and development. As a result, I was eager to apply for the 2016 KPMG Scholarship, and it is an honour to this year’s recipient.

Receiving the KPMG scholarship will bring new opportunities. In June 2016, I will begin my first internship with KPMG, and upon graduating from Georgia State University, I will enter the graduate program where I will receive on the job training and mentoring from industry professionals. As an aspiring accountant,starting my journey with KPMG.
