I am an aspiring lawyer and writer studying at the Queensland University of Technology. As a casual law clerk, I assist solicitors with legal matters by conducting legal research, drafting court documents, and liaising with clients.
Working in the legal industry has taught me that in order to successfully communicate with others, confidence to exert belief in myself and my abilities is imperative. I believe that my empathetic nature and willingness to create change have been central in connecting with people. I have developed a highly tuned ability to listen patiently to others and interpret messages that are communicated in a subtle manner. Furthermore, I have excellent written and oral communication skills as a result of my experiences as a law clerk.
I am passionate about science, technology, and creative innovation. Recently, I landed a position on the Executive Board of QUT Starters. QUT Starters is a student society that fosters innovation and entrepreneurship within QUT. My own contributions to QUT Starters include the execution of Disrupting Law, an intensive three-day competition designed to tackle real world problems faced in the legal profession. My experience within QUT Starters has significantly developed my ability to think critically, in addition to having further improved my time-management and organisation skills. I also have a strong willingness to learn, and believe that it is important to keep up with modern advancements.
In addition to my experience within the Brisbane innovation space, I previously studied science, where I gained experience as a scientific researcher in Mozambique. My particular research focused on identifying individual Manta rays through photo identification.
