Undergraduate Accounting Student Serra Vu Recognized as RSM US LLP “Leader of Tomorrow”
A student from the C. T. Bauer College of Business has been recognized among the 10 top undergraduate student leaders nationwide by a leading network of audit, tax and accounting firms.
Accounting senior Serra Vu has earned $10,000 for the upcoming academic year from the RSM US LLP “Power Your Education” Scholarship.
The scholarship program is designed to build the middle market business leaders of tomorrow through 10 scholarships provided to undergraduate students from around the nation. In addition to the financial award, selected students also received an invitation to participate in RSM’s externship program, Pathways.
In order to be considered, scholarship candidates submitted a short statement describing what makes them unique, along with a 30-second video addressing their thoughts on the “Power of Being Understood.”
“In this hectic world it’s hard for everybody to slow down and think about the different backgrounds we all come from,” Vu said. “If I take a moment to put myself into the shoes of another, I can empathize with those around me creating a kinder environment. The result of this is my perspective of our culture, where diverse viewpoints, experiences and backgrounds, are recognized and every employee is mindful and supported.”
