“That is the beauty of this internship, it’s allowing me to be out of my element and think in a different way that I am not accustomed to.”
While attending Navajo Technical University, as a business student, we provide surrounding communities free tax services. Through this course, I have enjoyed preparing taxes, during which I have built a client based relationship with my community members. In the future, I would like to continue preparing taxes under my own practice to provide honest affordable services to all surrounding communities. Under the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) role I hope to provide effective financial assistance to entrepreneurs and businesses. Also, to have the skills and ethical principles to assume leadership roles whether it be in the workplace, communities, or the global business environment.
