“Our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?

Medicine, because it’s a career path I would find equally intellectually stimulating and would allow me to help people.

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

I was a summer analyst at Manulife Asset Management. I learned a lot and found it highly rewarding because I was able to apply in a real life setting what I had learned throughout my undergraduate finance degree.
