"I knew Thanh during 4 years of college in Vietnam. I had enjoyed many opportunities to work closely with Thanh in various student events when Thanh held the position as Executive member of the Student Association Committee Board. With a very strong communication skill and his creative approach, Thanh always brought to the table new and interesting ideas, which were valuable assets to the Student Association. More importantly, he was passionate in turning those ideas into successful execution. His initiative of organizing the graduation party in a cozy atmosphere, themed “An End That Starts”, made the evening the most memorable experience for all students in our class. We talked about it now with pride, even after years of graduation. Thanh also contributed greatly to the success of our biggest Halloween party on campus. Thanh was also a very fun people to be with, he inspired the team through his good sense of humor, and motivated others through his dedication and strong commitment of things he set out to do."

SUMMARY

I’m approaching completion of the CMA’s pre-professional program and will be sitting the Entrance Exam this year. With a focus on tax, accounting and business finance, I am pursuing the CMA designation whose 2-year Strategic Leadership Program will surely arm me with the required knowledge and skills to bring about the most value for the company that I am with. I am an active young professional with a strong sense of purpose and urgency. Work ethics and intergrity are very important to me.
