TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

Annika Pierre Michel

My name is Annika Pierre Michel. I enjoy analyzing, creating and traveling. In leadership, I value interactions, health, and freedom. I am passionate about architecture. I am attracted to learning interesting skills and meeting like-minded individuals. I currently enjoy playing chess, assembling puzzles, and binge-watching shows and movies. I’m also an advocate for environmental sustainability. In the future, I envision an exceptional work-life balance while achieving greater creativity, developing my work, and exchanging ideas. My life goal is to improve my health and life endlessly.

 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL?

My best experience in school is learning something interesting enough and meeting like-minded individuals.

WHAT INFLUENCED YOUR CHOICE IN MAJOR?

For many of us, being financially stable is a way of defining our success. Money is traded for nearly anything, home, food, school, accessories, and the list goes on. Nevertheless, I believe my field of study is crucial in today’s society. Finance ensures that people’s sources of income and livelihoods are maintained. It is beneficial to everyone. Individuals, businesses, and governmental entities all value it.

HOW DO YOU ENVISION YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?

In 5 years, I want to be the one to help my clients reach their inflection point and celebrate their maximum financially. I envision myself to be seen as honest, bold, and accountable. Most importantly, I envision an exceptional work-life balance while achieving greater creativity, developing my work, and exchanging ideas.

WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO LEARN FROM YOUR COLLEGE EXPERIENCE?

From my college experience, I hope to learn how to make better financial decisions. For instance, helping my clients achieve their goals with plans, such as savings, investments, budgets, insurance, tax strategies, and much more.

WHAT EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES DO YOU ENJOY?

I currently enjoy playing chess, assembling puzzles, and binge-watching shows and movies. I love to volunteer as it helps my community. I also advocate for environmental sustainability.
