I was drawn to this career because upon researching different career prospects during my High School years I realised that I showed a proclivity for the skills required from a young age. I did my LLB Degree immediately after High School and recognized both my passion and ability to critically analyze the law. I was drawn to the complexities around contracts and company law in particular. I decided to continue this course of study and develop my skills to the greatest extent I could, which resulted in me enrolling for my LLM Degree in Corporate law after graduating with my LLB Degree. I naturally chose to continue this path. I decided to pursue a career in this field because I enjoy writing, utilizing my communication skills and being able to aid in corporate and commercial related matters. The field I have chosen I very vast and every day is a learning experience which is quite important for me because I believe that as a person you constantly need to be challenged in order to grow and become a better version of yourself.
