I believe that university offers an excellent opportunity to further my learning in a more challenging environment and to deepen my understanding of the knowledge and skills I already have.
I am keen on all aspects of business, but am particularly interested in accountancy/finance and management.
Through my current study I have learned to be more computer literate and how to effectively manage my time. I became interested in accountancy when studying the finance unit in business studies and I am now completing an As level in this subject as I felt this would give me a sound footing when starting my university course.
I gained an As level in sociology which has sharpened my ability to analyse information in depth, which is vital for management. Sociology has also helped me appreciate people’s different needs in society, which I see as an important feature in business.
One responsibility that I held for a year was the role of the middle school prefect. This helped me to gain an insight into typical basic management responsibilities. In Year 13 I then became a senior prefect and our role within the school is to help out with such activities as fund raising and the school fate.
Taking part in the Young Enterprise scheme taught me many skills; how to work independently and with a team which was one of the keys to our company’s success as “best company”.
