Hey! My name is Aleesha Syed and I'm a grade 10 student from St. Marcellinus. Today I had the pleasure to attend the National High School Business Conference. Here are my thoughts highlighting what I learned about. I learned that there are a variety of different branches of business I can go into. I learned about forensic accounting which really interested me and l me to do more research about it after the conference. I really enjoyed the fact that an actual forensic accountant was chosen to speak about this career because it gaven more personal insight about this career path and also gave us interesting stories to listen to.This conference introduced me to the idea that with a CPA undergrad, you can pursue any career path which i didn’t know about before. I also enjoyed the first presentation talking about mental health fitness and having the right mindset because I think that is a very important mindset to have regardless of what you may do.The thing I enjoyed the most was the case study as it gave me and my teammates the opportunity to experience a real forensic accountant situation which engaged me and my team members a lot. We got to work hard together and complete the task given as well as have fun while doing it.I can apply the thinking and communication skills in my everyday life as well as business life! This was a wonderful experience and event with great networking and helped me learn a lot.
