Cum Laude Graduate Determined to Become Chartered Accountant
Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting cum laude graduate, Ms Omeshni Doorasamy, is on the path to qualifying as a chartered accountant.
‘This qualification has enabled me to pursue my Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting this year (2023) and to go on to serve my articles with PricewaterhouseCoopers to help achieve my goal of becoming a chartered accountant. There is still a long way to go towards achieving my goal, but with hard work and dedication and with the Lord Jesus Christ by my side, all things are possible,’ she said.
Being passionate about maths and accounting in high school, Doorasamy knew that she wanted to study accounting at university, hence graduating cum laude is validation that she made the right choice.
‘The sheer amount of time, effort, determination, and other related aspects necessary simply to pass this qualification are daunting. Difficulties aside, it is very gratifying to receive a satisfactory set of results and to see the culmination of one’s efforts result in graduating cum laude. This makes all the hard work and sacrifices worthwhile as this degree will enable me to pursue any type of career in the field of business. It will also open opportunities in many different countries.’
