I am a senior at California State University, Fullerton studying Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. I transferred into Cal State Fullerton for the beginning of my junior year with one goal in mind; to be the best possible student I could ever be. When entered, I immediately declared a major, and proceeded to scout for clubs that would orient me towards learning more about my major. I managed to join the Student Managed Investment Fund, where I learned an incredible amount about portfolio management, stocks, and bonds. My involvement in the club has helped curate a solid foundation about the finance industry at the institutional level. Towards the end of that first semester, I was then promoted to the be the head of fixed income for the club, where I would assist other fellow peers in improving their finance skills with the ones I have learned as well. Being the head of fixed income was a great milestone for me, as the progress that has been made from when I transferred into Cal State Fullerton and now, is immense. Outside of academia, I aspire to become a finance professional. The areas in finance I enjoy the most are portfolio management and quantitative analysis, these two fields are of much joy to me because I find it rewarding to actively always learn new things that you can apply towards a portfolio, and there are always new things. In the future, and what I am currently focused on the most, is in accumulating as much knowledge as I can, so that I can further my skills and one day gravitate myself towards these roles.
