3. What led you to this career path?

My dad was a CA. I never thrived to follow in his footsteps. This changed when I set off to Rhodes University to do a degree in management. In 1st year we had mandatory subjects, one of which was accounting. I grew in love with accounting at this point and decided to make a career out of it. I knew I did not want to become an auditor/CA like my dad, so the SAIPA path offered me the opportunity to become further qualified in a less stressful manner.
