Hi, I’m Alex, and I’m a current 2A Accounting and Financial (AFM) student! A little background about myself, I love plants, reading, and am an avid coffee drinker. There are many lessons I wish I could have told my first-year self, but here’s my chance to share what I’d consider the most important one: Celebrate the wins!
