I have always believed that accountancy is a branch of science that consists of conveying a story using numbers. But sometimes these numbers are intentionally used to conceal the truth or unintentionally convey incorrect and misleading information due to errors. The urge to find out the truth behind the facts presented and provide information that is true and fair led me, Diksha Jeswani, to pursue ACCA.
There were many reasons why I decided to pick the ACCA Qualification. From a very young age, I had an ambition to do something different. When I was looking into potential career options in Dubai, I always wanted to combine my studies along with real world experience. When I heard about ACCA, I realised that this could be something which would fulfil both, along with it being a qualification that is recognised globally, and so I embarked upon this as a career choice.
I also believe that along with gathering knowledge, it is necessary to gain practical experience in a field in order to enhance your understanding of the subject. To fulfil this objective, I started working in an audit firm, Horwath Mak Limited, as an audit associate after clearing the first 3 papers of the ACCA Qualification. I have completed 12 out of 14 papers and will be attempting the final 2 papers this June.
My ambitions for the short term are to pass my remaining papers of the ACCA Qualification, as I have to still pass my optional papers and then to become a member after completing my practical experience requirements (PER). Then I would like to maintain my CPD requirements and try to give back to my profession as much as possible.
