Personal statement of education and career objectives
Since I was little that I always dreamed about being an economist. I loved everything about economics, like discussing our political and social problems, and discussing what would be better for the world in an economic perspective.
Besides this dream of mine, I am a person who likes to earn my achievements, making myself deserve everything I get.
I am also a basketball player, and I love sports.
On an educational perspective, I would like to double major in Economics and Business Administration with a final GPA of 3.5 or higher and also get a masters after I get both of my bachelors.
I also want to be on the Dean’s List every single semester, which is something that I can be proud of, since I have done it every semester so far.
My current GPA is 3.5 and I have been working very hard to keep it that way.
My goals for my career are a little bit complex.
I want to keep my dad’s company, which is a air-condition for buses company, situated in Portugal, Europe, since it has been his life work and investment.
I would also like to work in New York City, either in the stocks market, or in a bank, where I would be able to use my major, economics.
I currently have a small amount of stocks on a soccer team called Sport Lisbon Benfica, and I would like to expand those, earning more profit out of them.
