Our team is comprised of genuinely gifted minds
Aside from building my career in the legal industry, I am a writer of a blend of romantic, philosophical and motivational poetry; and additionally, I am a self-published author of my first anthology, The Storm.
I believe in chasing your dreams fearlessly, and constantly taking steps to develop yourself as a person.
Having just completed the accelerated LPC, I am currently a trainee at a City law firm.
I have an assortment of interests from politics to creative writing. A fun fact about me is that I published my first article on a statewide blog at the age of 15.
As some of you may have guessed I am training to become a Barrister. I take great pride in investing in my abilities to defend those who cannot defend themselves and uphold a more inclusive concept of justice. ‘Justice’ is a construct that wholly excludes minorities and I aim to change that narrative.
I am very excited about my career as a black woman, I would like to be the change I want to see in the world. My interests are cooking, reading anything and asking ‘WHY?’ to everything.
I received my BA Honours in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from the University of Exeter. Following my Second Year, I worked in the Corporate Development and Research department at Mews Systems, a mid-sized tech start-up; I continued in this role alongside my studies for the remainder of my time at University. While at University, I also worked on other projects including an Investment Banking Case Study and held a role as a Peer Mentor.
My interests include football, music and in the past I have volunteered my time to a homeless shelter. I plan on reading a lot more in the future, to add to my interests!
Like most people, I moved to the UK in 2014 and graduated three years later with a 2.1 in LLB Law, from the University of Exeter. Now, I’m a city girl.
At this stage of my law career, I am still applying for Training Contracts. Something I’ve found particularly difficult is “selling myself” - portraying myself and my experiences in a manner appealing to prospective employers. However, I have found that with each application I gain a better understanding of what law firms look for and most importantly, what I am looking for. Perseverance is/has been the key word in my legal journey thus far; the plan has always been to become a Solicitor and I don’t plan on giving it up any time soon.
Through BAME Nation, I hope to share the lessons I have learnt and make your legal journey just a bit easier.
Through the BAME NATION platform I will be sharing my experiences and views on a career path in law from an international student’s perspective. I am passionate about helping others achieve their goals and I am excited about growing the network to enable as many people to do so.
