Where Have You Been and Where Are You Going?
My name is Manna Chang. I am the “quiet kid who sits in the back of the classroom”; however, that is not quite who I am. I am a person who choose to not talk because I can’t give an intellectual answer or a concise answer. My thoughts tend to jumble everywhere. Don’t worry, I do speak. But the nature of talking never developed throughout my childhood. I can say over the time, I met new people and made new friends, I changed a little bit. I don’t change a lot because this is who I am. If I open myself up to a person, then I am not a quiet or shy person. I tend to be loud and hyperactive however it is very hard to bring that part of myself out.
During high school, I made myself join the Academy of Finance at Fort Hamilton School and I was allowed to take many opportunities to learn more about the financial fields and to have an internship during the summers of 2010 and 2011. I am still the quiet kid at work because my first internship, I never get to stay in one location and my second internship, my desk was behind a pillar thus I can’t see anyone and no one can see me. (Side note: I love work but it doesn’t apply to school-related work.) As of now, it hasn’t been much of a jump but a big leap.
Even though I choose to follow a career path of becoming a accountant, I may still think of other majors to consider. Besides business, I always have interests in computer science and forensic science. I want to take two languages if that is possible. And study aboard to South Korea — for many reasons, it has nothing to do with love for Korean (pop) music/dramas even though I never really love Korean dramas, but I do watch them because I love how Korean actors and actress act.
For the time being, I have to worry about the speech that I have to present today. Even though, throughout my high school life, I did speeches and skits, I never overcome the fear of speaking in front of a group. Strange. And then there is Philosophy. A test tomorrow. But I am expecting to finish all my assignments before due date from this upcoming 5 days weekend.
My hopes are passing test and completing my assignment with 110% effort into it. There is a lot more hopes for this semester but it’s 1:15 AM and I can’t think anymore.
