How did you hear about Lakeside? I originally found out about Lakeside from a job posting on the University of Toledo’s job site. After applying and telling people about Lakeside, I found out that a lot of people already know or had previously had a cottage here.
What are you most looking forward to this summer? I’m looking forward to making new friends and gaining more experience in a professional business setting. Also, to make myself more marketable to future employers. I also plan to have a variety of experiences and learn new things while here at Lakeside.
What do you hope to gain from this experience? To gain a better understanding of the field of accounting. I hope to learn more about the various processes and day-to-day activities of an accountant in the real world.
Name one goal you hope to achieve this summer? To gain the skills to make myself more marketable as a student, and for future employers when I begin my career.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time? In my free time, I am a member of the University of Toledo’s club ultimate Frisbee team. I enjoy playing other sports as well, such as baseball, basketball and running. When I am not doing those things, I am drawing, longboarding, playing video games or listening to music.
What is one of your proudest moments you have achieved thus far in life? Being chosen for the Accounting/IT internship here at Lakeside would have to be my greatest professional achievement. With regards to academics, I would have to say that it was being awarded a special scholarship. For the scholarship, I was invited to fill out an application. Then out of 100 applicants, 17 students were chosen, and we went for group interviews. Out of those 17, 8 were awarded the scholarship.
What is your dream job? I am planning on going to graduate school in order to get my CPA. My plan is to open and have my own business someday.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I have gone zip lining in Jamaica, parasailing in the Bahamas, and air boating in the Florida Everglades.
