What attracted you to the Ti:ger program?

I was attracted to the Ti:ger program’s opportunities to work with upcoming technology and innovation. I was also drawn to the entrepreneurial aspect of Ti:ger. I was intrigued with the opportunity to engage in research regarding new technology while simultaneously exploring the legal aspects of the technology.

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

I hope to gain experience working with technological research I would not normally encounter in a traditional law school course. I am also looking forward to gaining practical communication and teamwork skills I can transfer over to working in a law firm and with clients.

What are your plans for employment after graduation?

I plan to work at a firm practicing Trademark Litigation or Complex Commercial Litigation.

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

The highlight of my experience at Emory Law thus far has been helping the 1Ls navigate through their first year of law as BLSA’s Co-Director of Academic and Professional Success.

What inspired you to pursue a career in law?

I decided to pursue a career in law to add diversity to the legal field. I enjoyed legal studies and recognized the lack of diversity in the field at a young age, and decided to pursue law as a result.
