I came to value and acknowledge the accounting profession as an important mechanism of ensuring order and my passion resides in the ambition to see the law realising its full potential.

Through my working experience, I have learnt to be responsible and committed to my duties. I have endured working under pressure and multi-tasking while achieving good results in all ends.
