Writing a personal statement (as an international student)

  A personal statement is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a chance to tell the uni why you want to attend uni, and what you wish to achieve there.   The key to writing a good personal statement is realising that everyone has their own story to tell and that all the skills […]

My ever-changing career path, Pt. II

  It’s been a really windy road to figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life.   I realised that I hadn’t been honest with myself about my passions, because something had stopped me every time from admitting my one, true passion for the media and entertainment industry. I’ve called […]

My ever-changing career path, Pt. I

  Over the course of this year since September, I’ve written not one, not two, but THREE blog posts on a change in career. I swear this is the last one, because I am so set on this career path and life plan.   So, the plan is to find relevant work experience in business […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. II

  In reading tons of job postings, I’ve come to realise that there are common threads in terms of what employers look for in their applicants, so I listed some important points in my last blog post. I’m sure I haven’t uncovered every single common thread, and it differs industry to industry, but the jobs […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. I

  I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I’ve been searching for a job this summer, and this is my first time job hunting ever. It’s harder than I thought and there’s an entire process to it that I had no idea existed! I thought my CV was pretty strong before I started filling […]

Happy 150th, Canada!

  So, today is 30th June, which means tomorrow is 1st July. The 1st of July is a sacred day for all Canadians around the world. It is the birthdate of Canada, the celebration of our confederacy, affectionately known as Canada Day.   This year, Canada is turning a grand 150 years old, so the […]

Contrary to popular belief, studying law is not hard!

  I hope everyone’s summers are going well so far! I’m back in Canada for the holiday, and although it’s nice to be home with family, it’s certainly not a time for relaxation. My summer is full with finishing up my Canadian degree (finally), prepping for my dissertation, and thinking about what to do after […]

Summer is here!

  First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone on finishing a/another year at Leicester! There is no victory too small to celebrate and just getting through the year is a huge achievement.   Now it’s time to relax for the summer before getting back into it! But (and excuse me for pulling a classic Law Student […]

The photo I sent to Scarlett after I found out the concert was sold out and burst into tears

John Mayer Day

  So, on 11th May 2017, I saw John Mayer in concert at The O2 in London. I wanted to write a blog post about it the next day, and here’s what I came up with:   As you may have read in Scarlett’s latest blog, we went to London to see John Mayer in […]

Learn from me and don’t take the easy way out

  As many of my friends are aware, I ‘have a degree in Music’ from the Canadian university I attended before coming to Leicester. We’ll get to that in a minute.   In law, we get the rare treat of being able to selectively revise for our exams. It’s not recommended, per se, but it’s […]
