Committed to Achieving My Goal of Becoming Essay

Excerpt from Essay :

committed to achieving my goal of becoming an accountant. I will do everything in my power to ensure that I achieve the educational background necessary to become an accountant. I will also ensure that I learn the ethical and moral roles associated with accounting, to prepare me for dealing with clients.

I would like to identify the top location where I would like to settle down. Finally, from a personal perspective, I would like to plan a relaxing vacation for spring break of the spring semester.

However, one of my bigger threats is that, as an international student, my employers have to meet a hurdle of demonstrating that there are not equally qualified American applicants.

Strategic Statement
