Recognizable Me: Hey everyone! My name is Perri and I am going into my senior year at the University of Colorado Boulder. I will be graduating with a Business Administration degree with an emphasis in Finance and Accounting. Born and raised in New York, I’m an east coaster at heart but have fallen in love with Boulder. I am a Buff through and through especially since I play lacrosse on the division 1 team at school. SKO BUFFS!
Where I’m At: Currently I am sitting in my kitchen in Long Island preparing for my summer internship in Boston. Beginning June 6th to July 30th, I will be working for DDJ Capital, a small investment firm right outside of Boston in Waltham. I will be reporting to the Director of Compliance and Director of Accounting, it will be more accounting but in a finance setting. The career path that I want to go down is unclear but hopefully being at a smaller firm will steer me in the right direction. However I am excited to take on a new city, gain experience, and learn a lot at this internship.
What I want: I am a very outgoing and a funny person. Sometimes it’s hard for me to present myself and my personality in a professional manner. From this class I want to enhance my communication skills and how to be professional in a business manner. I want to be able to hand my resume or cover letter to someone and not only be proud of it but give a lasting impression.
I have always been more of a numbers person which is what drew me to accounting and finance. Writing hasn’t been my strongest attribute so I am looking forward to enhancing my skills in this area. My goal for taking this class is to be an articulate writer in the field of business.
Where to find me: You can find me out and about. Either at a friends house just hanging or out on Main Street, I love spending time with my friends and family. Family is really important to me and I am super close to them. My sister is 26, my brother is 24 so I am the baby in the family but love all the perks it has.
I am a city girl so exploring big, exciting cities is something I really enjoy. Just looking up at a skyline or walking around blocks and avenues seeing all the different people could entertain me for days. Manhatten is where I definately see myself after college, though Denver is moving up and up on that list.
Being active is a big part of my life as well. I grew up playing sports my entire life and lacrosse is still a huge part of my life today. In my spare time though I’ll pick up a tennis racket or put on bike shoes and cycle. Watching sports is great too, huge Giants and Mets fan, Go New York!
I look forward to reading everyones posts and “meeting” you all!
