What experience, job or internship have you learned the most from or found most rewarding?

Before moving to Canada, I worked as an associate at one of Nigeria’s premier law firms. I had the opportunity to advise on several local and cross-border transactions, engage with professionals across different fields and make lifelong friends.

My parents. Both of them are entrepreneurs at heart. They taught me to creatively solve problems and stay resilient when things don’t go as planned. These qualities continue to apply to my career today.
