I was born in Sydney, but around the age of 6, my family moved to Forster in order to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. When I was growing up, I always struggled to find something that I was interested in and passionate about which was also a realistic prospect for me to turn into a career.
After graduating high school, I spent 2 years in full-time retail selling tiles for my parent’s small business before heading off to university to try and get a tertiary qualification. I enrolled in a Business Degree and Diploma of Language with a Major in Japanese, but dropped the Business Degree after only three weeks. I instantly knew it wasn’t for me. I continued studying Japanese for a few years and transferred into a Teaching Degree with a Major in English. After studying for around two years, I began to feel that teaching was not right either.
For some time, I really grappled with trying to find something and in the meantime, I just kept my head down and knew that if I got good grades, I would be able to transfer into a different degree. I really liked my literary studies, but recognised that if I wasn’t going to be a teacher, a career would be very difficult in this field. After recalling that I enjoyed taking legal studies back in Year 11 and 12, I decided I should transfer into a Law Degree. At the end of that year, around 2017, I somehow managed to get in. I then began my Law Degree, in tandem with continuing my Major in English; which I have since graduated from in 2020.
I am currently nearing the end of my fourth year in Law and in July of 2021, I was extremely lucky to be offered a position here at The Law Office of Conrad Curry. I really enjoy studying law at university, but a lot of areas of legal practice itself I find conflicts with my morality. For that reason, I find myself especially grateful that I am able to work and learn from the plaintiff’s side of disputes and hopefully help people who have suffered personal injury. I also have a passion for the Environment and Environmental Law which I am considering pursuing a Masters in to further my education either in the sciences itself, or from a legal standpoint.
In my spare time, I have enjoyed travelling to Japan on two different occasions: with my brother; and again, with some of my friends. My favourite place I have visited was Shirakawa-gō. It’s a tiny town nestled in the mountains in central Japan, where the specially thatched roofing is as thick as the perennial snowfall. As well as travelling, I also enjoy watching the English Premier League where I follow Liverpool FC, watching shows on Netflix and playing videogames.
