Campus: Memorial High School
College Choice: Texas Christian University
Intended Major: Business, finance and/or accounting Career Goal: CFO (Chief Financial Officer)
If you were to ask most teenagers going to college at this point in their life, two-thirds of them would most likely tell you that they have no idea what they want to do. I wouldn’t be one of them. I have wanted to be an accountant since I took an accounting class my junior year. My even longer-term goal is to be hopefully be a CFO (chief financial officer).
I have come to realize how expensive Texas Christian University is, but feel it’s the best place where I can reach my goal of becoming an accountant. My goals for my college education are to get my degree and get a steady job where I can provide for my own family, as well as my family at home.
I would like to major in business, finance, or accounting. Accounting is organized and sometimes exact, which I love about it. I plan to finance this education with financial aid from TCU and with scholarships like yours.
