Hello there! I am Ikenna Henry Onyebuchi, a graduate from the University of Exeter with an LLB Law degree. I am currently on a Career Commitment Scholarship, studying at BPP University Law School, enrolled on the Legal Practice Course, with the combined master’s in law degree. I am also currently in search of a training contract to embark on my journey to becoming a solicitor in England, and I will be sharing my journey through BAME Nation!

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.

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.

Hello my name is Jad. I currently work as a Private Equity Sales Associate at Capstone, a policy analysis and regulatory due diligence firm, covering the European Financial Services, Business Services and Energy sectors.

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!

Hello, my name is Adaobi Amechi and I’m in the process of completing my LLM LPC at BPP University, Birmingham.
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.
