Scholarship Essay

544 words - 3 pages

Outstanding academic performance in school, active participation in extracurricular activities, and work experience has allowed me to develop strong quantitative, leadership, and communication skills. These skills have allowed me to excel in many diverse situations and have given me the confidence to pursue a Master’s of Science in Finance at the University of Alabama through the University Scholars program. I believe that my involvement and work done so far at the undergraduate and graduate level has given me a solid foundation for future success in the business world. I plan on completing a Bachelor of Science in Finance specializing in Insurance/Risk Management and a Master of Science in Finance specializing in Real Estate in 4 years, completing the program in May 2012. I understand ...view middle of the document...

Also, I am a student leader in Alabama Action each year, which allows me to plan and implement projects to help underprivileged, poorer schools in the Tuscaloosa community. Finally, I have been a volunteer mentor at a local middle school and would like to continue to volunteer there on a weekly basis. I have a passion for giving back and being active in the Tuscaloosa community and feel that there will be even more opportunities available after the devastating tornados that ripped through our community this spring.
After college I plan to work in the Insurance industry as an underwriting analyst gaining valuable experience before going back to school to earn a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. This will help me to achieve my ultimate career goal of becoming a CEO of a major insurance corporation. This summer I was selected to participate in the Intermediaries and Reinsurers Underwriters Association summer internship program and will be working in New York City with Transatlantic Reinsurance Co. as an underwriting intern in the medical malpractice area. At this point I am sure that I want a career in the insurance industry. The dynamic nature of the insurance business and the practical rewards that can be seen when insurance truly helps people and families on a daily basis makes it a rewarding and exciting career choice. I am so excited to gain some practical experience this summer at my internship and I hope that I will be able to bring back what I learn in industry and apply it to more classes as well as the Alabama Insurance Society. In conclusion, I feel that the Derek Hughes/NAPSLO Educational Foundation Insurance Scholarship would allow me to continue my activity in the community and even allow me to succeed and learn even more in the classroom and professional societies.
