Hallo everyone! My name is Adhitya Fadriansyah, I am a 26-year-old Indonesian married to a beautiful woman and blessed with a 21-month-old son. I am currently pursuing the ACCA Qualification while working as an Offshore Investment Appraisal Analyst at ConocoPhillips Indonesia. Futsal and football are my favourite sports and I am a big fan of Juventus Football club. During my leisure time, I love to play games and keep up to date with the latest developments in technology/gadgets.
My parents have been persuading me to pursue accounting as a career path since I was in elementary school. Even in my elementary school year book I wrote that my goal is to become an accountant – even though I did not know what accounting really was at that time, to be honest! :) Later on I understood how important the role of accountant is to the well being of a company, not only for record keeping but also for providing valuable information to the decision makers, to help the company achieve its strategic objectives.
Although I was influenced by my parents to pursue an accounting degree, I made the decision to pursue ACCA myself. I chose ACCA because it is a globally-recognised professional qualification. I believe ACCA will give me the strong foundations I need to compete in a competitive global market.
I have always dreamed of obtaining international experience and becoming a global citizen, being able to help others and develop my nation – as well as the accounting profession. In the end, I would like to make my elementary school year book goal come true – by becoming a full-fledged accountant. As Walt Disney once said, ‘All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.’
