My advice to the present pupils of William Edwards – NETWORK – build relationships with as many people as possible. The more exposure you get, the better!
Get involved – sign up to as many extra-curricular activities/projects as you can – it will really differentiate you from others in the future. It develops skills, builds relationships, gives you experiences, and is perfect for your CV.
Be inquisitive/curious – ask as many questions as possible and talk to your seniors/alumni for advice. If you don’t understand something/are struggling with something there is always someone out there who can help you.
My next goal – Short-term goals:
In summer I will be attending an international summer school in Hong Kong to study international finance, as part of an exchange with my university.
Achieve a minimum 2:1 degree at university
Obtain a grad role/internship in the financial services sector (specific interest in asset management/portfolio investment)
