    I am applying for Accounting and Finance undergraduate course and am not able to form the introduction of my personal statement, even though I got the rest of the structure formed.

    I know what I want to start off with, but for some reason, I'm not able to translate that into appropriate words

    I want to start my personal statement by saying how I was always money-minded and loved managing money and finances. Can somebody please help me out here by conveying this appropriately. I don't want too sound too snobbish or a money freak, just smart when it comes to managing money.

    Somebody please help me fast!!

    Unis don't care about what you did when you were little. I know someone who wanted to be a cat. Apart from that, money isn't exactly accounting and finance, so stories of arranging your piggy bank are especially not relevant.
