Degree Subject: Politics, Philosophy and Law (LLB)
Graduation Year: 2021
About Grace: I am currently a third year Politics, Philosophy and Law (LLB) student at KCL. I am also an aspiring solicitor, with an interest in commercial, insurance and sports law. Completing a legal internship at King’s College Hospital Legal Services fuelled my interest in insurance law, and more specifically, claims and disputes, as I had exposure to claims handling in the context of medical malpractice and negligence. The Law Schools Global League Summer School in Turin furthered my interest in commercial and corporate law as I had the chance to study corporate governance and the regulation of the sharing economy on a global level. In my free time, I love to exercise! I used to be a competitive swimmer, swimming at national, and sometimes international level. I also enjoy cross country and attending classes at my gym. Moreover, I am passionate about charity work. I am taking part in the Shine 10k Walk in London in September 2019, with the objective of raising as much money as I can for Cancer Research UK.
Favourite thing about Bright Network:
My favourite thing about Bright Network is their continuous support. I have attended numerous events organised by Bright Network, including the ‘First Year Lawyers Top 100’ and the ‘Future Lawyers Top 100’ events. Support is at the core of Bright Network as a platform. They are motivated by the clear aim of guiding and preparing students for a successful future. The Bright Network Academy exemplifies this, as it was set up to help students with psychometric tests and interview preparation. The support Bright Network provides for students is second-to-none. I truly feel as though Bright Network has been on this career journey with me since day one!
About me: I am from Hong Kong and Singapore, but i was raised in multiple different cities. I'm going into my 2nd year at King's College London as an Economics student; a fun fact about me, there are 12 seasons and 293 episodes of Grey's Anatomy and I have seen every single one. My hobbies include going to the gym frequently - ain't no body got time for cardio, do the squats and lift those weights. I’m an aspiring investment banker within M&A division or corporate lawyer in the City, and have gotten work experience in both a startup and the corporate world.
As an avid advocate of social issues and social impact, I am the current events director for Enactus KCL - a non for profit student organization creating social enterprises that generate positive social impact and empowering those in need. Business development and consulting is an area that I am trying to strengthen myself in, thus I decided to take up the role as the incoming business development director for 180 Degrees consulting. It has been a rewarding experience so far connecting with different people, both culturally and academically, and I am looking forward to doing just that as a Bright Network campus ambassador this upcoming academic year.
Favorite thing about Bright Network: To me, Bright network is more than just a career guidance platform for university students. With the aim of reaching out to as many university students as possible, Bright Network attempts to do this through its unique multi-channel approach. Through various employability workshops and events, Bright Network has given me the opportunity to network with organisations and firms, and build on my future employability skills. More importantly, the campus ambassador community comprises of bright, driven, and sociable individuals, headed by an actively helpful team seeking to provide a stepping stone for members towards a successful career pathway.
