Meet Jia, one of the newest members of our Nexis team. She has been at Nexis for 6 months and is loving the role of Bookkeeper within the dynamic Nexis office.
As a bookkeeper, her best advice to clients is the simple task of beginning to bookkeep in your business and doing research to find a good bookkeeping system that suits your needs.
We spoke to Jia to find out more about her.
Who inspires you and why?
My mum inspires me because she is a strong woman. She works hard in her career and takes good care of our family. She always gives me great advice.
What was the best concert you ever attended?
A primary school concert – my cousin and his schoolmates were the performers.
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Taormina – a hilltop town on the east coast of Sicily, Italy. I travelled there when I was studying in Milan in 2017. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Great sandy beach and nature reserves.
If you could be any animal, which would you be and why?
A bird in the forest, away from people and danger! I would stay in the sky forever. Being a bird would be so freeing; you can go anywhere.
What’s the last book you read?
Individual tax return guide – I am a boring person, I know.
What are you passionate about?
Delicious food – It always lights up my day.
But more specifically, I am passionate about self-improvement in my life. This could be in every aspect of my life, not just career. I am always keen to learn new things and I would be bored if I lived in the same life as a year ago.
What’s your favourite movie?
Pirates of the Caribbean. Love all of them. Cannot get enough, even after watching them hundreds of times.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Went to Thailand for the purpose of quarantine to come back to Australia to finish my studies and all my plans here; it was a big risk, not knowing how the COVID-19 situation would be in Thailand and Australia.
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
I’m watching Elementary on Stan recently. My go-to favourite is always Grey’s Anatomy.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
Maybe Elon Musk, to learn about his Mars project SpaceX…
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
I don’t have just one, I have had many! There is never just one best meal.
If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
South Africa. This will be my go-to place to go for my honeymoon if I have enough budget and COVID-19 disappears.
Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?
My best friend Jessica, my boyfriend, my mom, my ex-boyfriend – who is my second-best friend!
What is your favourite family tradition?
Every time I leave home, my mom cooks dumplings for me.
Who is your favourite superhero and why?
This is a good question. I would say Iron Man, because unlike most superheros, he builds his weapons with technology to fight the enemy – he wasn’t born a superhero, which is cool.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I used to be a night owl when I was a student. I never went to bed early and was very productive at night. Now I am a morning person because my body automatically needs sleep around midnight!
