She is now in her final year at Berkeley College in New York City, where she is studying for a degree in business with a major in business management and a minor in accounting.

After graduating next year she hopes to study for her masters’ degree in accounting and then gain the CPA.

Deloitte awarded its $5,000 Bursary to Travis Trott. Mr Trott graduated from Warwick Academy and is studying for a degree in business with a double major in accounting and finance at the University of the West of England, Bristol.

A spokeswoman for Deloitte & Touche said: “The aim of the Deloitte Scholarship and the Deloitte Bursary is to give our Bermudian students assistance in the funding of their education, as well as hands-on, practical experience.

“Both recipients have also been offered positions with our Deloitte Exclusive Experience Programme (DEEP) for the summer of 2012.”

The annual Scholarship is presented to a Bermudian student interested in pursuing a career in accounting or financial services.
