Can memorize random numbers and specific ledger accounts without really trying.

What drew you to education?
The mission is important and [having] first-generation immigrant parents, I experienced the challenges that come with not having the same advantages as others. Lucky for me, my parents worked hard and gave us an opportunity to succeed, but not everyone has that same opportunity and they should.
