1437 Words 6 Pages
I was born in the town, Fayetteville in North Carolina. Fayetteville is a small town that had a Wall-Mart, The Waffle House, Bojangles, and a Ruby Tuesday. If, you were to drive by and blink, you would have missed it. I went to church every Sunday like a good Catholic and I also went to a Catholic private school. Church and school constantly repeated the same message “follow the Ten Commandments.” I grew up in a very a religious environment that ultimately sheltered me from the “real” world.

I was unaware that there were places were religion wasn 't your sole identity or that people who claimed to “live though God” did not dictated your life. …show more content…
This was my favorite reading that had been assigned to us. I find it extremely interesting that a car accident influenced her to change her morals and views on the world. I think this brings up the question of “what if she never got into a car accident, would she still have been as persistent as she was?” Her commitment in reporting fraud, even when faced with retaliation is admirable.

I have heard many stories of unethical decisions being made and how Wall Street is a “Boy’s Club.” The Wall Street Journal stories that I have followed are, Sacrificing Ethical Values Bugs Women More Than Men, by John Carney and Sheryl Sandberg: Women Are Leaning in—but They Face Pushback, by Sheryl Sandberg. They are both great articles that discuss different female’s experiences and ethical dilemmas they faced while working on Wall Street. Throughput the semester I have met amazing leaders. I have met Harry Morkopolos, who was kindly let me interview him. His role in the Madoff Case is inspiring. Another leader I have met this year is, Aalok Body, the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Pillars of Wall Street. He taught me a lot of things about how to succeed and what is expected of you while working on Wall
