Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    Individuals always say that accounting is boring and tedious, with long hours. In academia, it is said that the road to tenure and promotion is difficult.

  • How I responded:

    There are tedious and boring aspects to every job, but each day is exciting and different for me. No obstacle is too big to overcome.
