Kylene

Accountancy Trainee

Hi, my name is Kylene, and I am currently doing a course with PAT, which is Professional Accountancy Training in Ireland. It means a lot to me to be doing this course because I have always wanted to do something within the accounting field. Previously, I was studying internal auditing. This course will enable me to progress further within the accounting field, therefore helping me to take a step towards meeting my goals and my dreams. This was all possible due to Recruit Refugees Ireland due to Roos, she was a major help. I am very grateful that I was given this opportunity.
