Hilary Yeboah moved from Ghana to the United States of America with her parents when she was young, and according to her, all her parents wanted was for her to get a good college education that they never had.
Hilary, however, did not just receive a good college education, but she also went on to achieve other academic laurels and honours.
It all started with her receiving a full scholarship in 2017 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Corporate Accounting, Finance and Computer Information Systems at Bentley University after graduating from high school. She did very well academically to ensure that her scholarship was renewed throughout her four years at the university.
During her time at Bentley University, she worked as a Graduate Career Colleague, which made her the Face of Graduate and Alumni Career Services and responsible for managing many projects in the office while supporting the team. She was also an Admissions Fellow, which required her to serve as a student representative of Bentley University and the admission office to prospective students and families.
Hilary later became the Vice President of Bentley’s chapter of Delta Alpha Pi, an American Honor Society that recognizes high-achieving college and university students with disabilities. She also reinstated the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) on campus and became the President of the group, as well as started the Bentley Business Bowl as the first student-run event in all of its 22-year history.
Hilary crowned off her achievements as a student leader at Bentley University by graduating Magna Cum Laude. She was further inducted into the Falcon Society of Bentley, which honours students who excel in their fields of study and also make significant contributions that improve the Bentley experience for their fellow students and the entire campus community alike.
“My journey was not easy but by the grace of God I graduated as a first-generation whooo!!” she stated with excitement.
Away from school, Hilary worked as a student volunteer for many organizations including the Habitat for Humanity International, Bentley Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Centre and Working for Worchester.
She also participated in an intensive Investment Banking summit with JPMorgan Chase & Co., the Harvard Business School Virtual Venture in Management, and worked as an Audit Intern at KPMG, U.S. She also interned at Microsoft and is currently working as an Incoming Financial Analyst.
According to Hilary, she strives to pursue a career in Finance and Tech where she will be able to influence generations through unique and creative campaigns that will help our financial position grow stronger.
“Our society is influenced by the need to connect through social media and I am determined to seek new and creative ways to inform the public of helpful resources and products that will change life for the better. I am passionate about creating different channels of communication through programming and financial instruments. We live in a world where staying in touch with progressive technology is essential.”
