From the Paper:

"Proficiency in mathematics and finance leads me to seek a quantitative career in the hedge fund industry. My passion in quantitative finance can be traced back to my undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California where I received a double degree in Mathematics and Economics and Business Finance. Furthermore, I achieved a perfect score on the quantitative section of the GRE. These achievements show that I have developed a penchant for quantitative subjects. Recognizing the essence of intensive quantitative skills required in financial analysis, I pursued my Master degree in Statistics at the Columbia University after a year of work experience. I strongly believe that my sound background in mathematics and statistics has prepared me for a career in finance and the pursuit of my ultimate professional goal."
