While at Edinburgh I am a part of the Lawn Tennis Society, the Edinburgh Buddies program, I have volunteered for the TedX program, and I am currently on exchange at the University of Sydney.

Final Thoughts

What words of encouragement would you have for students from your home state or province thinking about applying to Edinburgh?

How would you describe Edinburgh in three words?
Stunning, challenging, rewarding

What are you hoping to do after graduation?
I hope to go to law school and work towards a degree in international law .
