Video: Belicia Tells Her Amazing Story Of Becoming a CPA at 17

[ UPDATE: In honor of her accomplishment, Wiley CPAexcel has just launched the Belicia Cespedes Accounting Scholarship !]

Heard about Belicia Cespedes? She’s the amazing young woman who passed the CPA Exam at 17 years old . Now she shares her incredible story in a video profile for the AICPA. It’s a must-watch!

Meet Belicia Cespedes, CPA

Belicia’s story is very inspiring and she is clearly a driven, well-rounded person who is destined to accomplish great things in her life. She’s done an amazing job so far, including:

  • Completing primary education at 10 years old
  • Finishing high school at 13
  • Graduating from Thomas Edison State College at 16
  • And, of course, earning her CPA license at 17

The last of those accomplishments may have been the hardest–and most rewarding–for Belicia, as she initially failed the FAR and REG sections of the CPA Exam. But her “never give up” attitude helped her pick herself up and hit her studies twice as hard.

We are so proud to say that Belicia used Wiley CPAexcel as her study materials when she beat the CPA Exam.

The above video comes from the AICPA’s Video Profile series.
