Candice Gopaul

Associate Actuarial Analyst
UnitedHealthcare Community & State

In the actuarial world you must think about things that might happen in the future. Does that mean you need to be a palm reader? Ha! Not quite…

iTwixie: When did you know you wanted to work in actuarial science?

Candice:  In high school. I was thrilled to discover a career in Mathematics.

iTwixie: Oh, so actuarial science is all about MATH! No way! Very cool.

So, did you ever have to overcome a challenge and how did you do it?

Candice: Deciding to leave the country in which I grew up to pursue a career with which very few people were familiar. It took a lot of strength but I reminded myself of my goal and I stuck to it.

iTwixie: When you look back at your years at RMU, what do you feel most proud about accomplishing?

CandiceMy biggest reward was knowing that I managed to balance a hectic academic life with a healthy social life.

iTwixie: What do you think is the biggest challenge facing girls today?

Candice: I believe the number one challenge for girls is finding the courage to do what inspires them. There are a lot of ideas of what girls should aspire to be, how they should look, how they should behave and what they should want.

iTwixie: What advice do you have for girls?

Candice: Pursue Your Dream. When you realize what your calling in life is, just go for it. It may seem difficult, even unattainable but you have to try. I admit that even now I look back and I can’t believe what I have accomplished, or where I found the drive.

iTwixie: Why are tennis balls fuzzy?

Candice: Tennis balls are fuzzy so that they can remove scuff marks from floors. The felt has the perfect texture for removing these blemishes, rough without being too abrasive, like the perfect actuarial exam.

Candice, you are so courageous! You have done things that even amaze you. That is fabulous. Love that. You rock!

Ok, iTwixie girls, what do you think of Candice’s advice? Ready to be courageous enough to do what you really want? Pretty inspirational, yes?  Why do YOU think tennis balls are fuzzy? Tell us right here, in the comments section below!
