Uni is what you make of it

  Recently, I was working an Open Day as a Law School Student Ambassador and a parent asked me what kinds of networking opportunities there are available for law students. I rattled off my usual list: Law Society competitions and moot winners receive work experiences or offers to shadow lawyers/judges, barristers and solicitors come in […]

What’s stopping me from pursuing what I want to do?

  This is a question that weighs me down, and has for a while. If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I’ve written many a blog post on my career path in trying to figure out what it is what I want to do. Over the summer, I’ve had chats with a few […]

How to prep for an application/interview

  Spending the last month applying for grad jobs has been the toughest, most time-consuming, but also illuminating process I’ve ever gone through. I’ve become so much more understanding of my strengths and weakness, and what kinds of jobs or company cultures align with my personality and strengths.   In researching a company and/or prepping […]

Insight on a Deloitte Careers Evening

  I wrote a while ago that I wasn’t going to write another blog post about a career change…   Well, friends, I did not lie! This blog post is career-related, but it is not about a career change! I repeat: I am not changing my career path again!!! (I’m really happy about it)   Just […]

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. It’s really […]

Lei, You’ve Taught Me A Lot

  My time at Leicester has genuinely been the best of my life so far. As cringey as that sounds, it’s true.   So, here is a lengthy account of some of the greatest things I’ve learned from my time at Leicester:   1. Follow your gut. It’s usually right.   Something I’ve  come to […]

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. This is probably the most important blog post I’ve ever written.   […]
