What do you believe being an ACCA member will do for your career?

I am an ACMA, CGMA and adding ACCA to my academic and career profile will enable me to continue to add value to the organizations I work for. I also believe that because ACCA offers a globally sought after qualification, I can work anywhere in the world.

How do you find the time to study effectively while working full time?

Time is a limited resource and has always been when it came to studying as I have always studied part time. I also have a 2 year old son. I have come to realize that it is not quantity but quality that matters. I try to relate concepts and subject matter as best as I can to my work experience and I used BPP online classes and practice past papers.

How do you stay motivated?

Studying is not about the overall motivation to complete the studies, it is rather the daily motivation that matters, which can be hard. I think about the future and building a solid foundation for my son and I truly believe in the power of continuously educating oneself.

What words of encouragement do you have for other students?

Work according to your time line and the pace that suits you. Focus on understanding what you are studying. It will help in the long run. PUSH on no matter what life throws at you.

Stay motivated!
