Hi! My name is Aline, and I am a second-year student in the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program.

I still remember being extremely excited but at the same time extremely nervous for my first year of university. Before classes started, I set up my account on the school’s website and found out about Waterloo Ready.

As I come close to entering my final year at the University of Waterloo, I reflect and realize that there are many things I have learned not only about accounting and finance, but myself.
