Criminology

Biography:

I am in my fourth year of studies in Criminology and I am minoring in Psychology. I hope to attend law school this coming fall, with the intent of becoming a criminal defence lawyer and one day opening my own law firm. Outside of my academic studies, I enjoy kickboxing, creative writing, reading and painting.

This was the first moot court competition that I participated in, and to be honest, I was terrified. I am very introverted and dislike speaking in front of groups of people, but I also like to challenge myself in order to strengthen my confidence. This competition taught me how to think on my feet in order to develop an orally persuasive argument, as opposed to a written one.  Also, it helped me control my nervousness when having to defend the position of my argument upon questioning from the judges. Overall, it was an excellent learning experience and I would encourage other students who are looking for a challenge to participate.
