I attended my local comprehensive school in North London and was unsure of what I wanted from my future career. Neither of my parents had attended university and I was the first in my immediate family to do so, reading English and Related Literature.

I’ve worked as a paralegal at a high street firm, as well as ad-hoc legal experience and waitressing. I worked temporarily for the legal team of a television and film company, before working for a gaming company. During this time, I applied for training contracts and found that my experience working for in-house legal teams really assisted my understanding of the legal sector.

After completing a Vacation Scheme and receiving a training contract offer at Bird & Bird, I’m now an Associate in Commercial, focusing on Retail & Consumer, Wellness, and Media, Entertainment & Sport. I’ve really enjoyed my experience at Bird & Bird so far and would encourage anyone interested in a legal career to pursue it.

As the only lawyer in my family, I understand that it can be hard to get in touch with people in the industry for advice if you don’t have any contacts. With that in mind, please get in touch if you have any questions as I am happy to help!
