Would you rather live in the ocean or on the moon?

The ocean. Being from Nova Scotia, I grew up at the beach and when I got older, I became a lifeguard.

Is there an organization that means a lot to you?

As a caseworker at the Western Business Law Clinic, I really enjoyed supporting small and startup businesses with their legal needs. Getting hands-on experience so early in my legal education has been a great opportunity, enabling me to develop tangible, practical skills that I can apply in my career.

Where was the last place you travelled?

The Czech Republic, where I studied during my semester abroad. Unfortunately, it was cut a little short because of the pandemic, but it was a wonderful experience. I hope to return to Prague one day!
