I am thrilled to return to Mann Lawyers as an articling student after being a summer student in 2021. I have a Bachelor of Arts, Honours, with a Medial in English Literature and Global Development Studies from Queen’s University (2018) and a Juris Doctor from the University of Ottawa (Common Law) (2022).
While in law school, I was a member of the Legal Writing Academy as a legal writing leader. I was a student caseworker for the University of Ottawa Community Legal Clinic in the family law department. I also volunteered with the Ticket Defence Program, where we helped houseless and street-involved people defend against provincial offences. I enjoyed working with groups that improve access to justice within the Ottawa community and working with clients to solve their legal issues as efficiently and effectively as possible.
While I now call Ottawa home, I grew up overseas and lived in several countries throughout my childhood, including Belgium, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Indonesia and Malaysia. I graduated from high school at the International School of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I try to return to Malaysia to visit my family and pets as much as possible. My hobbies include trying new food, learning to downhill ski (COVID past time turned current obsession) and spending as much time as possible swimming in lakes during the summer.
