Hefgine Fils-Aime, Accounting

Coming to America from Haiti as a 14-year-old high school junior, Hefgine Fils-Aime’s first year in America was spent learning to speak English, attending high school classes taught in English, studying for the FCAT, and preparing to apply for college as a 16-year-old.  It was a tough year, one Fils-Aime points to when asked about accomplishments that she is most proud of.

Four years later, Fils-Aime is the recipient of several scholarships, has earned a very high GPA in USF’s rigorous accounting program, and, thanks to a Student Excellence Grant, has assisted USF faculty with research.  She was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, an invitation-only business honor society, as a junior. In addition, Fils-Aime is a member of two business student organizations, Beta Alpha Psi and Alpha Kappa Psi.  She has done all of this as a work-study student, working part-time in two USF departments: Africana Studies and Business Systems Reengineering Department.

Fils-Aime was one of just 25 students selected to attend the January 2011 Accounting Diversity Consortium at Wake Forest University and was also a participant in the PricewaterhouseCoopers Florida Leadership Adventure.  She has already been offered a summer internship with PricewaterhouseCoopers for this summer.  After graduation, she aims to begin her career with the firm, pursue a Master’s in Accountancy degree, and become a Certified Public Accountant.
