1. I trade some of the stocks.

2. So far, I have had a basic excel project in my computer information systems class. We were required to use the AverageIF, SumIf, and GoalSeek functions in addition to pie graphs, pivot tables, and bar graphs in order to determine financial decisions for a specific company.

3. I really enjoy working with excel and access to solve quantitative problems. I took a class in college Information Technology Management and we learned how to solve financial and accounting problems through excel quickly and efficiently. I know this sounds weird, but I almost found it as a game and thought of it as fun as I worked to beat the clock to solve analytical problems. On excel, we made amortization tables, pivot tables, macros, and formulas to efficiently solve problems.

4. I worked as an actuarial intern at foresea life insurance. I got a chance to assisted the team with building pricing model of a twenty year endowment insurance. At first we needed to identify the factors which we need to consider in the model such as gender, age, car accident rate, mortality rate and so on. And then we needed to write an actuarial report which demonstrated all the terms and conditions for this product. After that, we built an model in excel as well as with prophet.

5. Mortality investigation.
