I am the third born of my family from Anambra State in Nigeria. I attended Nazareth Primary School in Festac town where I learnt the basics knowledge I needed to excel. Thereafter I proceeded to Louisville Girls High School headed by Reverend Sr and with the help of a dedicated staff team inculcated good values into making us women of integrity and substance. The students I met had ano impact in my growing up though we started out rough we were able to learn to tolerate, appreciate and understand one another. I graduated from Louis Girls High School and attended Igb, Okada for my bachelor degree in Accounting. The reason for my choice of study is as a result of my sound mathematical and analytical background. Accounting, the language of business is the means by which relevant and reliable financial information can be communicated to the users who can analyse that information to make business decisions. With its broad application, it provides a lot of job opportunities and is used in profit and non-profit organisation. My career objective is to add credible value to any organisation I find myself and I aspire to be a chartered accountant and be the best in what I do. My hobbies includes reading, meeting and interacting with people and discovering new things. The National Youth Service Corp scheme was created in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the civil war. It was the need to look beyond the immediate present and think of the future leadershipof the country that necessitated the mobilisation of certain categories of our youths through the NYSC scheme. This was done with a view to giving them the proper guidance and orientation relevant to the needs of the country. The NYSC decree number 24 which has now been repealed and replaced by Decree No.51 on 16th June 1993 was then formally promulgated. The purpose of the scheme is primarily to inculcate in Nigerian youths the spirit of selfless service to the company and to emphasize the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of all Nigerians irrespective of cultural or social background. The story of our country since independent has clearly indicated the need of unity amongst all our people and demonstrate the fact that no cultural or geographical entity exists in isolation. Some of the objectives of this scheme includes the followings amongst others -To impact discipline in Nigerian youths by instilling in them a tradition of industry at work and of patriotic and loyal service to Nigeria in any situation they may find themselves. -To develop in the Nigerian youth the attitudes of mind acquired through shared experience and suitable training which will make them amendable to mobilization in the nations interest. -To contribute to the accelerated growth of the national economy. -To remove prejudice, eliminate ignorance and confirm at first hand the many similarities among Nigerians of all ethnic groups. In order to achieve the above objectives, the scheme shall ensure -The equitable distribution of members of the service corps and the effective utilization of their skills in areas of national needs. -that as far as possible, youths are assigned to jobs in state other than the state of origin. -That the Nigerian youths are exposed to the modes of living in different parts of the country. -The members of the service corps are encouraged to seek at the end of the service year, career employment all over Nigeria, thus promoting the free movement of labour. The scheme also included a three-week compulsory camping activities. At the end of the camp, I was posted to Wema Bank for my primary assignment and the journey into the banking industry began.
