I am Bulgarian and moved to Scotland in 2012 to read law. Since my graduation in 2016, I worked at several law firms as a paralegal, gaining experience in various practice areas and working with professionals across the globe, until I secured my traineeship with TLT in 2023. I am now working towards my qualification in 2025.

As an international student who struggled for a while to secure a traineeship, it is important for me to be a role model for other international students who aspire to join the British legal profession and are maybe uncertain or doubtful of fitting in while preserving and showcasing the flair and personality of their nation’s culture. After all – an office where individuality and multiculturalism thrive, is a successful office.

I would love to offer my experience, insights, and advice in relation to what I have struggled with during trainee applications and my career. I can also provide insights around my current traineeship. I can also share what I do on a daily basis to further my career and promote my personal brand; and support candidates from international backgrounds feel included in the legal industry.
