I came to the United States for a two-year work and culture exchange program, which was when I heard of Framingham State University and decided to take an evening class as a continuing education student. I simply fell in love with the campus, college community, and accounting.

When my time here in the US was coming to an end, I decided that I no longer wanted to become an engineer back in Brazil, but an accountant and that I would finish my college degree at FSU.

Today, I'm in my senior year, and I am thankful for the choices I made. At FSU I grew as a person, developed skills essential to my career, and made friends for life. I was able to work on campus for the University Police ID Office starting my freshman year, and during my junior year I started an internship at the MetroWest Economic Research Center, also located on campus.

I was invited to join an honor society by the College of Business, and on my last semester as a junior I became the president of the FSU Investment Club, which I helped create with the support of other FSU students and faculty members. In my first semester as a senior, I was offered an internship at a CPA firm for the tax season, and was invited to four additional honor societies, including Phi Kappa Phi. I have already signed a contract for an internship upon graduating in December with one of the biggest CPA firms in the world in its Boston office.

The continued support we receive at FSU from our Professors and advisors makes a big difference in how we excel in our academic journey and career planning, and for that I am forever grateful.
