1. What is something that not many people know about you?
I want to eventually buy a huge farm and live with rescued animals.
2. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
My first involvement with FACL BC was in June of last year when I attended the Annual Women's Social. It was a lot of fun speaking and connecting with senior lawyers and colleagues, and hearing stories of their early days in law. I loved how the event was divided into the fun ice-breakers in the beginning, and then segued to a more serious discussion in the breakout rooms later. It was a great evening.
3. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
FACL BC's “But I Look Like a Lawyer” documentary.
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
Your cultural background is a strength, not a weakness. Don't be too hard on yourself and have faith in the ways of the universe – wherever you are in life right now, it is to prepare for the next chapter.
