Success Stories

Trupti Patel

One of ASA’s Finest, Ms. Trupti Patel, graduated with a degree in Business Administration & Management (AAS) in March 2021. She has the distinction of being the first in her family to do so. Given her talents, we weren’t surprised she accepted the role of Financial Associate with Sysco in Knoxville, Tennessee, where she is responsible for coding invoices, depositing manual payment and managing petty cash funds. On top of that, Ms. Patel is pursuing a bachelor’s in Finance at the University of Tennessee. Reflecting on ASA, she says, “When I started, my biggest challenge was the language barrier…but I learned you never give up on your dreams, the path will be tough, but worth it.”
