My Internship and my subsequent employment at KPMG were a mere confluence of luck and sheer will. Initially, it was my accounting professor (working at KPMG Austria) who recommended to apply at KPMG. I followed her advice and I got in touch with KPMG Philippines. I had no expectation at all since the Big 4 are notorious for declining internship applications. When PPC replied, it took me one hour to decide to book a plane ticket for an interview. That was when my story with KPMG unfolded. 

I was expecting that I will have to cope with cultural differences as well as a different lifestyle. To my surprise, the internship was more than meets expectations. I acquired knowledge from managers from different service lines in the Advisory department, and my superiors were both helpful and hands-on. The office setting was very accommodative and fostered a learning environment. These amongst other reasons were why I decided to come back and pursue a career in the Firm - in particular, joining the Financial Risk Management (FRM) team, focusing on IFRS 9 (Financial Instruments) adaption and statistical modelling.
