Gabriela Suarez

Degree Subject: Law

Graduation Year: 2020

About Gabriela: My name is Gabriela Suarez, I am Spanish, Iranian and English and born and raised in the South West of England. I am currently in my second year of my Law degree and in the future, I hope to qualify as a solicitor and work at a prominent London law firm. I became a Bright Network member at the beginning of my first year and it has provided me with so many opportunities to meet interesting people from around the UK and the world. I am the Vice-President of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) at my university which helps me to become involved in the international student community at Queen Mary as I love travelling and meeting diverse groups of people. I work part-time and alongside travelling I enjoy reading, music and the company of my friends.

Favourite thing about Bright Network: I love the events organised by Bright Network. They let me leave my university bubble and explore networking in a different community of students and professionals. I attended Bright’s Diversity and Inclusion Conference in 2018 and it was a refreshing and alternative look into networking and business that has really fuelled my love of meeting new people and getting to know businesses.

Simren Lakhan

Degree Subject: Economics and Finance

Graduation Year: 2020

About Simren: I'm currently a second year Economics & Finance student at Queen Mary University. Prior to attaining a summer internship offer with BlackRock, I attended a number of Bright Network events including panels and events targeted at women in business. I found these extremely useful due to the breadth of exposure offered, involving a variety of firms and business areas. This exposure, in conjunction with my role as Public Relations Officer for my university's Banking & Finance society helped to develop my interest in Finance. I look forward to assisting others develop their own interests.
