Hard Work and Dedication the Key for Business Science Graduate
Bachelor of Business Science cum laude graduate, Ms Simone Somasundram is excited about exploring the avenues that her qualification will open for her.
‘My future plan is to be admitted as a member by the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute and to use that membership to grow my career in the financial industry. The Business Science qualification has given me the skills that are required and will therefore help me to be recognised by financial institutions,’ said Somasundram.
As a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society, graduating cum laude is a reward for Somasundram’s hard work and dedication to academic excellence.
‘I am a hardworking and conscientious person who is determined to succeed. I achieved an A-aggregate throughout my school career and I believe that my dedication and work ethic enable me to produce work of a high standard,’ she said.
Somasundram also attributes her academic success to her family’s support.
‘My family and faith have shaped me into the person I am today. My mom is an account analyst at a major bank, my dad is a deputy principal, and my brother is a chemical engineer. They are my inspiration to achieve my goals. The motto that I live my life by is, “I have a fingerprint that no one else has; therefore, I will leave an imprint that no one else can”,’ she said.
