I made sure I was excellent in mathematics, humanity studies, and literature. I was academically gifted and not only passed my subjects of interest but all subjects in the school curriculum. I was always at the top of the class and took challenges positively from other bright students who would outcompete me. Given my brilliance in science subjects, one of my high school teachers had asked me to consider switching my career prospects to that of engineering.

Although I will be graduating with an accounting major I am not interested in practicing accounts, a reason I have been so reluctant in pursuing professional courses in CPA.
