Personal Information:
Major: economics
Family background: I was born and raised up in China. Since my family owns their own company that is why I want to major in business. My father built up his own business from nothing so I want to follow his path and also take over his business during his later years.
I had joined AGS ( Alpha Gamma Sigma) at SMC which is an academic honor society and service organization of the California Community College system. It was founded to help promote, maintain and recognize scholastic achievement and community service among students.
To gain practical experience in the workplace, I worked for a summer back in my homeland at a company specializing in financial software. It had taught me much about teamwork, responsibility and time management in the workplace.
I regularly read newspapers and economic publications to keep up to date with economic developments and I am able to use my mathematical and analytical skills to apply different economic theories to a range of real-life economic situations. I have found economics to be a challenging and diverse discipline and I am interested in both macro and micro economics. It is this variation of perspective, combined with its real world importance, that makes economics an appealing subject to study at university
