From an early age, I have always been
asked what career I want to do in the future, as always my response would be: a
lawyer. And that has never changed. Why? Because I have always been intrigued by
the way the law functions, how the system of rules regulates behaviour and
seeks for justice. My passion for law continued to grow by watching my mother
do what she has always dreamed of, which was to become a lawyer. My mother
worked hard to be who is she is now, and I believe it is for me to follow her
path. She has also reinforced my determination to reach my goal. I am looking
forward to studying law because I want society to be justified and right, which
is what I believe lawyers do. Seek justice. Certainly, it is why this career is
always on my radar.
What amazes me the most in law is how functional
it is in our everyday lives, how practicing law leads to the probability of
making a difference in both the clientele’s lives and our community. Being a
lawyer would be a privilege to be defending human rights as well as fighting
for equal treatment. I believe that law is not hard work rewarded by wealth but
more of self-satisfaction, a feeling of accomplishing the objectives of your career,
connoting to being an honest individual.
What motivates me more and more every
day to reach my goal is that as an IB student taking History, Mathematics, and Business
I have learnt several things that drive me more into studying law, particularly
in History. Getting to study and enjoy rational arguments about the Holocaust,
the Civil rights movement, or the Apartheid has taught me a lot about humanity.
Mainly on how all prejudices ruined lives of countless innocent people, for the
only cause of their differences that were not accepted nor welcomed by society
whether it being gender inequality, race, politics, religion, social class, and
many others. In that case I wish to change and protect these differences.
Last summer in 2017, I personally was
fortunate to obtain the opportunity to join the legal profession in a law firm,
as an intern. That pushed me further into pursuing my dreams, that permitted me
to gain more skills such as social and communicating skills which I believe is needed
Being my school’s basketball captain
and house leader has strengthened my team working skills, as well as my
leadership abilities and made me a great competitor. Outside the fact that I enjoy
doing volunteering work, group works, do analytical thinking, problem solving
and negotiating issues. This entire experience permitted me to boost my self-confidence.
The ability of doing extra-curricular activities has enabled me to learn how to
balance my social and academic life.
My inspirations to practice law are
things such as, the society in which we live in… several people are not heard
because of their differences that detach them from the community, and instead
these people are in fact neglected, as well as they are the same people I wish
to help. My aim to become a lawyer is not for the cliché reason that it is a
long assured career or pays a high salary, on the contrary, it is important for
me to utilize my passion by performing the ability to provide my services to
the community, defend ideas, and work on fascinating and challenging topics.
What I love the most is the feeling of fulfilling justice.
I am thoroughly aware that deciding
to study law is not a course that should be taken lightly. It requires being
hardworking, committed and intellectually disciplined, features that I presume are
searched in a decent lawyer. Choosing the UK as my destination is for the sole
purpose that British Universities are able to offer outstanding courses, life
changing opportunities and great faculties. So therefore, being able to proceed
with my studies in the UK would be an ideal chance to attain a career I have
