CPA Campus Ambassador Insights: Sophia Ng, Camosun College

Hello, my name is Sophia Ng and I am in the Bachelor’s in Business Administration Degree with a Major in Accounting at Camosun College. I am born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, and expect to graduate in April 2021 

What made you decide to become a CPA Campus Ambassador? 

I’ve always enjoyed building meaningful relationships by being able to answer questions that pique other’s curiosity and I found that being a campus ambassador would embody that. 

What do you hope to get out of being a CPA Campus Ambassador? 

I hope to learn more, as well as share my knowledge with others, about the CPA program. 

What aspect of an accounting/business career surprised or interested you most? 

What surprised me was how diverse being a CPA can be. It opens up many opportunities for you even if you choose not to be an accountant in the future. There are many paths, such as consulting or analytics, which are also pursuable. 

What was the deciding factor for you to choose the CPA path? 

I’ve always looked up to my cousin growing up, so when I was able to watch his CPA journey, I was curious and inspired to start my own. 

What do you hope to achieve in your future career? 

I hope to find an environment that continues to challenge my growth as a working professional, and become knowledgeable in my field. 

Can you share an interest outside of school that you are passionate about? 

Outside of school, I enjoy maintaining my active lifestyle by playing volleyball and badminton. 

Can you tell me one thing about yourself that others might not know, or find surprising? 

In my spare time, I like to collect dried flowers and find Do-It-Yourself projects to make gifts for my friends and family.
