My penchant for problem-solving made me an ardent Economics, especially the problem solving in real economic world. Strong economics skills and innovative thinking acumen were time and again tested and utilized in such projects. Although extremely fond of the implementation aspects and economics, when it came to choosing a career path, I was all along convinced that it would be in practical economics.
Last summer, I was invited to Shanghai from the Citibank for a program of Elite Training. In here, I learned a lot about the knowledge of banking system, how it operates and earns money, and I met many successful people here. The knowledge from here made me more curious about economics, and the people I met attracted me to become the person as successful as them, so I chose Economics as my major. With the knowledge I learned, I know loans are the largest asset and deposit are the largest liability of a typical band. Also I’m learning Math as a minor because I feel I’m good at math, and now I had learned calculus I, II, III, and my grades are A.
