" As part of the Fellowship program I had the opportunity to represent my program as a Facebook Ambassador, serving as a professional face to prospective students. This position not only provided me with an excellent platform to practice and enhance my communication skills but also to network and meet aspiring individuals interested in the accounting and finance fields. Furthermore, it gave me the opportunity to familiarize myself with the ever-growing social media industry in a professional manner and acquaint myself with the new AFM curriculum."
