Thanks to your help, I have now finished all 6 semesters of my course and have begun the final course, where we will be managing a project or thesis, as it is also called.

My family and my younger siblings are very happy for me that I have almost finished studying for my professional title because it will open many doors for me work-wise, allow me to support my younger brother with his studies and learn more about accounting in practice.
