Advice for aspiring CPAs
“You have to know what you are looking for and then fight for it to achieve your goals. It’s so fulfilling to take one step at a time and watch those small steps lead to something great!”
Least favorite phrase
“I can’t do it.” This tells me someone is avoiding challenges, staying in their comfort zone, and sticking with things they already know. They aren’t willing to learn.”
What can’t you stop talking about?
“My two cats, Milky and QiQi. They are so cute, and they are my first pets. Before I had them, I didn’t know I could love them like I do. They’ve changed me and turned me into a cat person. I can’t live without them right now.”
