Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, FL
The speakers in the Invest program introduced me to the world of insurance and I discovered how vital the work of an actuary is to the industry. Next year, I plan to study business with concentrations in data science and statistics. I’m intrigued with the idea of pursuing a career in actuarial sciences and I see a lot of potential working in insurance.
I also learned a lot serving as the Chief Financial Officer for my school's DECA chapter, where I helped to maintain a $70K annual budget. Because of my participation with DECA and my membership in the National Honor Society, I will be attending an upcoming International Career Development Conference. I’m also completing an internship with State Farm and I learned all about running a local agency.
Invest has shown me how valuable all my business and accounting experience will be when I’m ready to pursue a full-time career in insurance.
