What do you enjoy the most about your degree programme?
I love the professors, the new friends that I’ve made, and the interesting content of the law courses I’m taking.

Studying at law school, running half marathons, road tripping to the highlands, starting a business.

Final Thoughts

What words of encouragement would you have for students from your home state or province thinking about applying to Edinburgh?
Take the leap. You will never regret the decision to study abroad. The people you will meet will be those that you stay in contact with for your entire life. Studying in Edinburgh brings so many amazing opportunities – not just academically but also personally.

How would you describe Edinburgh in three words?
Beautiful, historic, enchanting.

I am hoping to travel after graduation, then settle down in Scotland and start working on my dream career – whatever that may be.
