 STUDENT: Shriani Patel
CAMPUS: University of California, Riverside
INTERNSHIP: California Department of Education - Audits & Investigations Unit
INTERNSHIP HIGHLIGHT: "One of my favorite parts of the internship is doing field audits, where we actually go to review the agencies receiving funds to manage their child and adult care program and monitor their meal nutrition that the children and older adults receive from the food at the centers. The best aspect of this job is seeing the impact on a first-hand basis that these funds make and seeing that these agencies are using the funds correctly."
FUN FACT: "As of now, I have go to school in India; Lusaka, Zambia; North Carolina; and Northern, Central, and Southern California. I like to think that I am a global citizen."
CAREER GOALS: "After college, I want to get my Chartered Public Accountant and my Certified Internal Auditor license here in California. While I study and prepare for the exams, I want to work under a CPA and I might go back to school to get my Masters in Accountancy. But, eventually I want to become an auditor and be at a company that is aligned with my values and is a community company. And later down the road, one day I want to start my own non-profit that supports women who have survived domestic violence, sex slavery, and help them get back into society and lead a regular life."
