What common myth about Davies would you want to dispel?
I think a common myth about Davies is that the workplace is very competitive. During my interviews I was reassured by how dedicated Davies lawyers are to working collaboratively and constantly supporting one another.
If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?
I would have wanted to be a reporter. The idea of chasing down a new story or finding a fresh angle to a societal problem is very appealing to me. It seems to be a job in which you are often being thrown into new situations without a lifeboat, which is right up my alley!
Is there an organization that means a lot to you?
I am the project director of the McGill Wills Project. I am very proud to lead this project, which helps make wills more accessible to low-income seniors. Ensuring that elderly people are treated with dignity and respect is very important to me, and I feel lucky to be able to do such meaningful work as a student.
