About Humerah: I am a third year Law student at Queen Mary University of London and aspire to pursue a career as a property solicitor. Following the completion of Pathways to Law during my sixth form years, I have gone on to become a Pathways mentor, and part of Pathways Plus, Aspiring Solicitors, and SEO London. I understand the importance of outreach schemes and the impact they can have on young people realising their potential - which is why I am now excited to continue working with the team at Bright Network.
Favourite thing about Bright Network: Working with Bright Network has allowed me to not only build up my confidence to speak publicly to a wide range of audiences but be given a high level of responsibility and autonomy to express my creativity and commitment to diversity through my role as a campus ambassador. The organisation as a whole has filled a gap in the market to provide honest and accessible career advice for a variety of industries, building a platform which evolves with the needs of its members.
Humerah is currently balancing studying Law and kick-starting her career with being active and engaged on campus - here's all of her top tips on how you can do the same!

About Ibrahim: I am the type of person that if I am not comfortable with something, I will do whatever it takes to change it. I love my friends and my family and I can be shy sometimes but when you get to know me better, I open up more and try to crack more jokes.
Favourite thing about Bright Network: We're at this point in our lives where we are getting introduced to the 'real world' and what it truly is like. Much rather than getting thrown in the deep end and fighting for survival, Bright Network is something that not only prepares you for the challenges ahead, it's something that opens doors, gives you opportunities and makes sure you have the necessary tools for whatever life may throw at you. Bright Network to me is more like a family that is there for you no matter what, and will help you in achieving your goals.
