Personal Statement Accounting and Finance
With the character of composure, steadiness and fortitude, I never give up. During middle school, I wasn’t deeply attracted to accountancy until having read the book _Corporate Finance_ written by Stephen A. Ross. It brought me to a completely new world with many different ways and modes of thinking, making me feel wonders of the major’s macro-function and micro-details. Consequently, my damnedest and savvy sent me to the commercial college of Renmin University of China in which my specialized field was accountancy. Three years of professional study has inspired my strong and unique sense of accounting, not to mention how prudential and careful I am in pursuing my bachelor degree.
The enormous pressure in this first-class campus with fierce competition stimulated me to strive for a better future instead of keeping stagnant. Without compromising to difficulties, I made every effort to improve and strengthen myself in all aspects. Active participation in class and plenty of time spent in the library finally earned for me the “Excellent Student”、”Second Prize Scholarship” and so on. Apart from my personal effort, as monitor, I also attempted and organized many class activities, such as mock interview where I divided my classmates into two groups, one group acting as the interviewer, the other as interviewee. During my ，I coordinated different parts of our class, our class gained the honor of University-level Excellent Class in 2013.
The advanced accounting courses will strengthen my foundation in accounting and help to prepare me for my future career in company controllership. The outstanding faculty, along with the excellent selection of courses available within your program will equip me with the latest accounting theories and practices and allow me to obtain my professional goals. I know that I am now fully qualified and prepared to take on this challenge. I strongly believe that my passion in the accounting and future career, my courage in facing challenges and my strong ability to adapt and solve problems have fully prepared me for your esteemed university.
