First, I have exchanged knowledge and vision with other students from other universities. As I have joined other competition before, I found out that I discovered new things every time. Therefore, I hoped that when I joined YFS competition, I would gain and experience something new. Therefore, I put a lot of effort in this competition and I was very proud with the result. I have used technique and knowledge that I’ve learned including accounting and economics. I also applied financial knowledge and theories to manage the company’s risk. I also used knowledge from Macroeconomics and Business Etiquette. Moreover, professors are also part of my success in this competition.
