Hi. My name is Naresh John. I am 23 years of age and I live in Trinidad and Tobago. I work at the Ministry of Public Administration, Public Management Consulting Division.
Accountancy has always been a favourite subject of mine. Though it was not one of my strongest subjects in the beginning, I pushed myself to ensure I excelled at it. I view accounting as using numbers to tell a story. It shows you how to see numbers beyond face value – so a change in any number can have an impact on several other figures.
After I started to excel at accounting, it became a passion of mine. I then decided to pursue my ACCA Qualification studies. I see this qualification as one of the most highly-regarded and well-respected qualifications worldwide because it’s recognised from country to country.
Once I achieve ACCA membership I see myself contributing to the accounting profession as a whole as well as just my country. On a personal note, I would like to own my own business one day as it has always been a dream of mine. It would be ideal if I concurrently lead a large organisation to success in the future too!
