Biography: I am a second-year student of Law and Accounting at The University of Hong Kong and President of the HKRU Scholarship Alumni Association where I lead organization of the annual charity ball and volunteer work with vulnerable populations. Previously, I was a mini-pupil in the Plowman Chambers, an observer in the government of Hong Kong’s free Legal Advice Program, and this summer I will be a mini-pupil at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer London office.
My goal is to become an ethical, competent, and passionate lawyer. I am a leader and I want to have a global impact which is why I have challenged myself to study international politics at Cambridge University, completed leadership training in the US at the National Outdoor Leadership School (training undertaking by NASA and Navy Seals teams), and have worked with entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia by holding conferences and training courses for the Nanyang Entrepreneur Foundation.
Being the elder sister in a single-parent underprivileged family in Hong Kong, I have encountered enormous obstacles but overcoming them has made me who I am today - a responsible, optimistic and brave young woman. Later in my life, after gathering enough knowledge, fortune and network, I wish to start a charity to conduct legal education and advocacy in developing countries.
I am always interested in opportunities in international law firms, where I can grow with talented colleagues and equip myself through well-developed training programs. I enjoy sophisticated and challenging tasks to serve diverse clients, from high net worth to underserved clients.
