Changing the world is possible when every component operates in an intelligent and ethical manner. Despite the historical stigma that has contradicted these very notions, I aspire to work in investment banking, and want work in the financial markets. Using economic theory and statistical methods to predict future outcomes is very intriguing. While I am not perfect, I do my best to act in an honest and steadfast manner when experiencing each day’s lessons. I believe that attitudes and behaviors are infectious. My goal in this career path is to be, the best banker, and also marked with virtue. In today’s world, it is possible to have an industry that maintains profitability and responsible practices. The financial markets control the world’s wealth and, if irresponsible, can destabilize the world’s economy. The importance of operating in a morally justified manner can go a long way toward perfecting a powerful industry. Each brick in the wall of Wall Street works in unison, and each is important in maintaining a sound building. It is overly simplistic for one to say the financial markets are a soulless system. I strive to be apart of the industry’s evolution that acknowledges the mistakes of its past.
My goals are simple yet lofty. To gain entrance into the industry, I must secure an internship and work with diligence and intellect to climb the ladder of the business. I can make the world a better place by “being the change I wish to see in the world.”
