Hello :) My name is Michelle and I am from Cupertino, CA. I am a third year Business Economics and International Studies double major and minoring in Accounting. This past spring and summer, I participated in virtual Summer Leadership Programs. While recruiting was different than what I expected, I will be doing an Audit Internship at RSM this winter and a Tax Internship at Deloitte next summer. I wanted to try both service lines out and am super grateful I have the opportunity to do so. On campus, I am involved in Chinese Association, Alpha Phi Omega, and Student Success Initiatives. From not knowing what service lines were, AALDP and my mentor taught me everything I needed to know to prepare for recruiting events. Therefore, I am so excited to give my mentee everything and hopefully even more than what I got out of this program. Outside of accounting, I love cooking and getting food with friends, especially Asian food! I also love going to Disneyland, editing videos/vlogs, listening to Chinese music/EDM, and going to concerts! I’m excited to meet y’all :)
