My name is Florence Moses and I am a rising junior at Baruch College. I am studying accounting because I enjoy understanding a company’s intricate financial structure as well as ways to properly manage it. Prior to America Needs You, I was lost. I lacked the direction, guidance, resources and opportunities that were vital to achieving my dream of becoming an accountant. America Needs You was the answer to my prayers. ANY provided intensive training on interviewing and networking skills as well as effective resumes and cover letter writing. Through the intensive Saturday workshops, I was able to enhance my communications and interviewing skills as well as boost my confidence. Before ANY, I was shy to speak in front of a crowd but through repeated practice, my fear of public speaking has been diminishing. In addition, my Mentor Coach has been very supportive and helpful throughout this journey. She assisted me in writing outstanding essays and cover letters for all my internship applications. With the guidance of ANY and my mentor, I was able to land the internship of my dreams at Grant Thornton where I hope to improve my quantitative skills and gain exposure into the world of finance. I am looking forward to another year of learning new skills, meeting new people and gaining new opportunities with such a progressive organization like ANY.
