Being raised in Chicago, I grew up always looking up to the enormous buildings filled with busy office employees working away at their desks. Seeing this every day, I grew a strong passion for business and saw myself someday working in a downtown office and having that lifestyle as well.
I also enjoyed attending Mock Trial in the past, as it gave me experience in law and sparked my interest in the field. I always enjoyed debating with my classmates and in the Mock Trial competitions. Our mentor lawyer in the club inspired me through her descriptions of her experience in her career and in her guidance of us in competitions. I hope to reach to that point in my career to give back to my community as well.
I decided to attend Lake Forest College due to their courses in business and the school’s good track record of sending students to law school. Becoming part of the ANY program will enable me to find more internship opportunities in order to gain more experience within both fields. The ANY program will also help me identify the career that is best fitted for myself and help me tackle my other goals in life.
