What attracted you to the Ti:ger program?

The program was a deciding factor in my decision to attend Emory Law. My interest in TI: GER stems from my past business endeavors, as I was always forced to think about ways to be innovative and improve traditional processes. The Ti:ger program offers a unique experience compared to traditional classes to get first hand experience in creating a  business.

What do you hope to gain from your experience in the Ti:ger program?

I hope to gain knowledge about creating and maintaining a successful business. I am excited to get practical experience by working with the Ph.D. students to have their ideas come to fruition.

What are your plans for employment after graduation?

I plan to work at a law firm as an Intellectual Property Associate in New  York or Atlanta.

What has been the highlight of your experience at Emory Law/ Ti:ger?

Towards the end of my 1L year, I was awarded as a recipient of the BLSA 1L Scholarship which was awarded to students who demonstrate leadership and dedication to the law school and surrounding community, continuing the organization’s legacy of giving back and striving for excellence in personal, academic and professional endeavors.

What inspired you to pursue a career in law?

A career in law has always appealed to me as I believed I had the necessary qualities. I also earned a Legal Administrative Specialist certificate in high school, where I was  able to learn a lot about the legal system. This course solidified my interest in pursuing a career in law.
