Hi everyone! My name is Gurpreet Saini and I am a grade 10 student at White Oaks Secondary School. Today, I had the pleasure to attend the National High School Business conference. What I learned from this conference was what a CPA is and how the process is to become one. I learned what a supplementary application is and got to listen to a few students talk about their experiences and challenges transitioning from high school to post-secondary schools. Another factor I learned was that it is important to seek for extra-curricular activities and try to join as many clubs you can so you can have the experience and gain confidence in the knowledge you obtain. The part I enjoyed most from NHBC was the competition because I really liked the scenario and challenge. It was fun working with my colleagues by creating presentations and discussing solutions. Lastly, I would like to thank Illuminate Universe for giving me this opportunity of competing in the competition which was located online via Zoom. I would always like to participate in these competitions because I like to take on challenges!
