I aim to pursue a career in Finance. I am attracted by this field because Finance is neither completely art nor science but a mixture of both and I enjoy work where there is a scope for thinking and creativity. Moreover I have big passion about the finance. I love watching how money is flowing over the world and the way things affect international financial market. Also analyzing stock market and companies excites me. I know that process to become financial planner is really difficult. However, I know that I can take all the difficulties and will be the best. I am sure that I chose my first step as starting at Eastern Washington University is the best choice. My decision to apply for a master's degree of finance and investment stems from my strong ability for numerical analysis. My previous work experience has been working with business development in the field of hospitality. I have been a part of organizing products to create sustainability for the company. Currently I work as a Lead at Gonzaga University, I began working there more than a year but through leadership development and hard work I was quickly promoted to Supervisor position.

I believe volunteerism is very important to one’s community. I have had the opportunity to volunteer with Spokane Neighborhood Action Programs with their food distribution through Northeast Food Bank. I volunteer one day a week sorting and distributing healthy nutritious food to individuals that live in that area who may otherwise go hungry. I have also spent time volunteering with Catholic Charities Christmas Bureau each December. The Christmas Bureau provides parent’s with an opportunity to choose a gift for each of their children as well as a book. I find it very rewarding that I am able to be a part of such a big community in Spokane that has a heart for helping. It is very important to me to maintain my job as well as balance my studies so that I can graduate with the knowledge that I have not only mastered the curriculum but have achieved knowledge on how to apply what I have learned to my new career. To that note I have received honors at my previous university for taking a leadership role in student government.
