Hometown: Brampton, Ontario
Undergrad/Major: University of Toronto (Erindale Campus), Double Major in English and Criminology
I was born in Mississauga and raised in Brampton. I did my undergrad at the University of Toronto (Erindale Campus) with a double major in English and Criminology.
The decision to pursue a law degree hit me halfway through my undergraduate journey. I realized that advocacy was something I wanted to do professionally. I got a small taste of that running the GSA LGBT Organization at my university and I wanted to continue down that path.
I chose Bora Laskin Faculty of Law because I liked the focus on marginalized groups and the opportunity to explore the intersectionality between poverty, women’s issues, and Aboriginal issues.
Furthermore, every course incorporates real-world experience into the assignments, making us better prepared for our transition into the workforce. The smaller institution lends itself to a unique learning experience. It is quite possible to know every single person at our faculty and our community is close and tight-knit because of that.
I encourage students who want a different kind of law school experience to consider studying in Thunder Bay. The community needs bright, young minds and you will soon grow to love the city.
