Meet Kimika - 2018 KPMG in Bermuda scholarship winner.

Kimika Jackson

2018 KPMG Scholarship Recipient

I am currently a rising junior at St. John’s University, studying Risk Management and Insurance. At a young age, I discovered that I enjoyed math as it developed me horizontally, stretching me beyond my comfort zone. My ability to think critically assists me with interpreting and analyzing different life situations and is connected to my keen interest in understanding the way companies work from an operational and financial perspective. With KPMG’s support, I have the opportunity to pursue an MBA in Enterprise Risk Management to develop the cross-functional skills valued when assessing and advising businesses on risk decisions. 

You can’t necessarily change the DNA of this business, though you are constantly asking yourself, “How do you increase your touch points?” I admire its rationality – the ability to innovate and change. This includes the aptitude to transcend traditional thoughts, fueling big ideas and opening the door to greater opportunities. This viewpoint fueled my interest in the KPMG Scholarship as it provides phenomenal support beyond school funding, including mentorship, internship and training. I am dedicated to achieving my goal in becoming a Risk Manager or Risk Analyst. They provide a better understanding of the risks and opportunities facing organizations and thus essential for them to have an all-encompassing eye. My innate attention to detail and ability to piece together ‘the big picture’ seems best suitable for me to contribute the best of my knowledge to KPMG’s Advisory Services, conducting thorough analysis to help transform risk and compliance efforts into competitive advantage.

I am pursuing this career path, because I enjoy the ever emerging risks and complex challenges, posed with its appreciation for diversity and professional development. KPMG is innovative, appreciating infinite learning. I adore the idea that every day will present a new opportunity, a new challenge and the flexibility to change direction. My excitement stems from the ability to interact and meet a variety of different clients and businesses, advising their structures and models. I am honored to be the 2018 KPMG Scholar and thrilled to reap the guidance of KPMG’s Lift-off Program to achieve my goals. Their great care and investment in non-accountancy fields demonstrates their incredible investment in young Bermudians, understanding the significance that other areas of expertise will add to their firm. I am confident that this award will nurture my growth of becoming a prolific leader within the industry.
