I am currently a trainee at Herbert Smith Freehills, having commenced my training contract in March 2022. Before that, I pursued my undergraduate studies in History at the University of Warwick and subsequently completed the GDL and LPC at BPP University.

My journey began working at McDonald’s, followed by a host of other jobs in various retail stores and even running a start-up. While it may be considered quite an unorthodox journey for a city lawyer, it was the skills and experiences I learned from these experiences that helped me succeed as a lawyer. I learned that coming from a diverse background is a strength that should be showcased as opposed to hidden. This should be used to our advantage; to view things from a different perspective, apply our varied skillset, and share our distinct experiences.

Herbert Smith Freehills is a strong advocate for diversity and social mobility, providing abundant opportunities for personal and professional growth. Their support has been invaluable in both my development and in fostering an inclusive environment that values individuals from diverse backgrounds.
