CUC 107 - Assess 1: Alternative CV Student No.: S324292 Language: Histories: English is not my first language for communication at my home. However, knowing the fact that English is widely spoken and the official language of the Australia during my high school, I continuously encouraged myself to communicate in the English language as much as possible and learn as much as possible from my early days. Hence, developing the skills to communicate effortlessly in English has helped me to perform well in my first semester and I understand I need to excel more to progress in my professional career. I believe listening to success stories helps an individual to learn from others experience and avoid mistakes. The goal that I have set in my academic discipline and professional career in the area of accounting and finance is highly influenced by success stories that I had heard from different people of society when I was growing up. It will help me to stop reinventing the wheel and focus my valuable time in the right direction. Law: I view the law for me is not limited to the chunk of rules passed by the constitutional assembly of the country. It is not limited to the legal system that governs the country. Law is a set of ideas adherence to which helps to create a harmony in the society where we live, encourage an individual to do things which is morally right and ethically correct. As being raised by a father from army background law for me is a framework which motivates me to be in discipline and be self-aware which is very important to progress both academically and in professionally because it develops a sense of ownership and accountability toward by action. Land: I was born in Kathmandu of Nepal. The city is geographically situated in the centre of the country. The place is well-known for the home of rich, educated, well-mannered and very important person in the country. Being raised in such a society has played an important part to engrave a thirst to acquire a good education, achieve academic excellence, work for a reputed company or be an entrepreneur and contribute for the wellbeing of the society and country as a whole. Hence, the land where I born and lived most of my life has motivated me to travel to Australia to pursue a higher degree and seek a career in my areas of study. Songs: I am well aware that mental pressure or stress creates a mental block which reduces the ability to think creatively, impact adversely on productivity and professional life. Singing and listening to my traditional songs has always worked to control my mental stress and has been proved to be a way of expression for me. I use this form of art as meditation, relaxing therapy and to rejuvenating my energy level. I am self-assured that I can practice these skills more in future to achieve my academic goals as well as to professional goal in the field of accounting and finance.
