1. What is something that not many people know about you?
It’s a weird quirk, but I can write like Leonardo da Vinci - backwards and in mirror image with my left hand.
2. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
I was very fortunate to have gotten involved with FACL BC when it started in 2011. I still remember being in one of the rooms in Allard Hall with a group of very distinguished lawyers and more senior students as a 1L in one of the first FACL BC meetings - I will never forget how impressive and how successful each of the members around the table were, but also how warm and willing they were to mentor Asian Canadian lawyers and students and to give back to the community. I believe this spirit has continued throughout and has only gotten more intense as FACL BC has grown over the years.
3. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
I think it is very inspiring to witness how agilely and successfully FACL has transitioned to the online space and continued to serve the greater community through our virtual events during this pandemic. I believe this is a testament to the initiative and the hard work of the FACL executives, volunteers, and members.
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
Continue to squeeze as much as you can from each lesson and don’t forget to wholeheartedly celebrate your successes - no matter how big or small!
