This firm is ought to be respected and even the persons who work there. Well, I think that will be a whole lot of fun. When everybody is looking up on you because, woah, youre working in that auditing firm. I also want to experience Sir Lacos experience in SGV because every time he shares his story, it makes us inspired to study harder.
