    When I was in high school, my parents’ investment in some stocks aroused my interest. So I read “The Smart Investor” by Benjamin Graham, which made me more interested in market investment research.

    After studying finance-related courses in college, I found that it can be used to analyze and predict the overall economic development of a country. For example, one-year central bank bill issuance rate can be used to predict government policy intentions, and 10-year government bond interest rate can be used to analyze basic macroeconomic conditions. I gradually understand that finance has brought me a new way of thinking. When I read a financial news, I can also try to analyze the reasons and possible effects of things.

    I participated in the energy economy competition in my freshman year, using python to do simple programming to automate the data processing. Through cluster analysis to study the relationship between electricity consumption and GDP contribution of different industries in Guangdong Province in China, I finally formed a research paper, which made me feel fulfilled.

    In addition, I participated in the PEAK TIME, an business simulation competition, as a group CEO in my freshman year. It made me realize the importance of financial accounting knowledge. If I cannot see the problems in a company’s financial statements, or compare the financial statements of different companies horizontally and vertically, it is difficult to make accurate judgments about the true situation and market value of a company. This is why I want to study accounting.

    As far as I am concerned, there are two main aspects to the fun that finance and accounting bring me. First, they give me a new way of thinking about problems. Second, I like the sense of accomplishment of applying what I have learned to analyze practical problems through the knowledge I have learned.

    When I was in high school, my parents’ investment in some stocks aroused my interest. So I read “The Smart Investor” by Benjamin Graham. This book made me more interested in market investment research.

    After studying finance related courses in college, I could draw on the knowledge I learned in class to analyze the overall economic development of a country. For example, I could try to use the one-year central bill issuance rate to predict government policy intentions, and use the 10-year treasury bond interest rate to analyze the basic macroeconomic situation, etc. Then I understood that finance brought me a new way of thinking. When I read a financial news, I can also try to analyze the reasons and possible effects of things.

    In my freshman year, I participated in the energy economy competition. I used python for some simple programming to automate data processing. Through cluster analysis, I was pleased to note the relationship between different industries’ electricity consumption and GDP contribution in Guangdong Province in China. I discussed it in my essay for the competition, which made me feel fulfilled.

    As a group CEO, I participated in a business simulation competition called PEAK TIME in my freshman year. It altered me to the need of the ability of making accurate judgments about a company’s value. The fun of checking out problems in the company’s financial statements and comparing the financial statements of different companies horizontally and vertically convinces me to learn accounting knowledge.

    As far as I am concerned, there are two main aspects to the fun that finance and accounting bring me. First, they give me a new way of thinking about problems. Second, I enjoy combing theory with the phenomena in reality.
