2002-2003 Statistics and Actuarial Science Endowment Award

Lin He

This award is presented to a student in the major/honor program with high academic standing.

"Like most students, I didn't grow up with a dream of being an actuary. I learned about actuarial career one year after I got my first bachelor degree in Communications. I made up my mind to quit my job and to go back to school after I researched this field and thought that it would be a good fit for me. The study in Actuarial Science and Statistics convinces me that I have made a right decision. The more I learned, the more I saw actuarial science as the way for me to combine my experience in business with my math and statistics strengths."

"My goal is to be in a profession where I can use my potentials as much as possible to help people out. Actuary is the very career that I am looking for."
