  • "My field of study is business. Throughout high school I was very involved in DECA, which is a large business organization. I had a lot of business classes that made me really enjoy the business field. I like interacting with people, so I chose business. I chose finance because it was a business major that had a lot of math in it, which has always been my strong point. I also feel that finance is a sturdy business major…every corporation needs people to deal with its finances. Because of this, I feel my major is a stable choice."
