Supply chain management was not the major I set out to achieve when I started university. I began in marketing, but realized it didn’t suit my personality. Introverted by nature, and with a passion for numbers, I transferred to accounting. I loved managerial accounting but struggled with financial accounting so I took a chance with supply chain. Supply chain management offered a variety of courses, including creative classes, like contract negotiations and courses like data modeling. The classes let me use my organizational, analytical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. It taught me to learn and think strategically once out in the workplace.
