Spotlight: Sena Byun
Sena Byun is senior counsel at TELUS and was a past board member.
1. What is something that not many people know about you?
One of my early co-op experiences in law school was as an immigration detention hearings officer!
2. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
I was a member of the Board from 2016-2019 and served on the Mentorship Committee.
3. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
My favourite events are the mentorship events and I personally found the career roundtables very insightful and I especially loved meeting with lawyers and students of all backgrounds. However, I think all of FACL's recent initiatives have been great, and despite not being able to meet in person due to COVID, the shift that FACL has made to online events has been amazing, the quality and depth of topics has been stellar and I think this virtual setting has allowed everyone to actually "meet" more frequently.
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
You never know what you are capable of if you do not try. Don't be afraid to jump in, sometimes head first, and try not to overthink everything!
