I remember that during my primary school, most of my classmates didn't know what to write when our teacher asked us to write an essay with the title "My Ambition".
As for me, I always wanted to be an accountant ever since I learnt math and that's at my pre-school age. Math is so fun and amazing! As a kid, way before schooling age, I always wonder why 1 + 1 = 2, why 2 -1 = 1, etc. I still remember the day I went to school, I looked forward to Math class. I needed to know the magic behind all this addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, etc and I would pay all the attention to the teacher's teaching.
When I study Math, I did not memorise the formulas. Instead, I learnt to understand the formulas. As a result, I did very well in Math. I always finished the Math test before the time allocated and got A grade for the paper.
And I also remember me asking my teacher "If I like Math and good in it, what occupation should I do?
And that's how I am an accountant today.
