Briefly explain your most recent educational background and any work (paid or voluntary) you were doing before you began your Fellowship?

Following completion of the GDL and LPC at Cardiff University, I accepted a position as a paralegal in the Public Law department of Watkins & Gunn. In this role, I acted for claimants in judicial review proceedings and actions against the police, represented families in Article 2 Inquests, acted in appeals before the First Tier Tribunal on the behalf of children and young people, and acted for victims in the Infected Blood Inquiry.

Why did you want to apply for a Justice First Fellowship?

The Justice First Fellowship stood out to me as an incredible opportunity to pursue a career in public interest law. I have a passion for helping others and obtaining a position with my chosen host, Childrens Legal Centre Wales, I will be able to contribute significantly to a better society for children.
The opportunities offered by the Fellowship to network and access support from experienced mentors are second to none, ensuring a high standard of training for those wishing to specialise in social welfare law.

Complete the following sentence: ‘Outside of my legal interests, I enjoy…’

Outside of my legal interests, I enjoy exploring new places, immersing myself in different cultures, trying new cuisines, and meeting new people. I am always eager to learn new skills and try out different hobbies, often with varying levels of success. Above all, I value spending quality time with my friends and family.
