November Spotlight #1: Alex J. Chang
Alex, a former FACL BC Board member, is a lawyer at Lesperance Mendes Lawyers.
1. What is something that not many people know about you?
I recently finished my first 50km ultra trail running race with a dislocated and broken pinky finger.
2. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?I first became involved as a volunteer on the Mentorship Committee before becoming its chair and a member of FACL's Board and Executive.
3. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
My favourite recent event was "What I Didn't Expect When I Was Expecting".
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
Don't be afraid to ask for guidance. It is natural to take pride in being independent or to worry that asking for help is a nuisance. However, if you take joy in helping others, it's safe to assume that others feel the same when the roles are reversed. You will do better and save yourself a lot of grief by seeking help from a peer or mentor.
