I am not a summa cum laude or valedictorian in elementary and in high school but I can say I also contributed my skills in school. I just get high grades if I study hard and I belong to a general section not the special section. But even though I was not in the special section, I was in the top 4 every school year ends, and when I graduated in high school I was in the top 16th among the 1,000 plus graduates.
When I went to college, I went well with my Accounting, it was my major and was recommended to get a Bachelor in Accountancy yet I choose the Management Accounting though, since I wanted to graduate early. I hate Math but I love Accounting, our guidance councilor said when she evaluated me, I just get serious with one thing when I am interested but if I am not expect me to have low grades.
