Deputy Coordinator, Robina

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Law (Honours) combined with a Bachelor of Psychological Science at Griffith University. I chose this path of study with the ultimate goal of becoming a family lawyer but I am also interested in areas of criminal, civil and contract law.

Additionally, I volunteer at My Community Legal in Robina where I hold the position of Deputy Coordinator at our Robina Centre. I am passionate about justice, helping others more specifically those less advantaged than myself. Through my volunteer work and work in the future, I hope to make a genuine positive difference.

With a sporting background, having been a national level swimmer, I am driven, hard-working and determined. I have a high level of attention to detail and am a fast learner.

Team Leader, Southport

I am a dedicated penultimate-year Law (Hons) and International Relations student at Griffith University with a solid aspiration to specialise in commercial litigation, environmental planning, energy development, and construction.

I am particularly interested in matters dealing with the implementation of new technologies (e.g. smart contracts, FinTech) and the complex political-economic considerations involved in sustainable development.

I deeply relish working for MCL. It is an excellent opportunity to apply everything I have learned so far to help the vulnerable battlers of our community!
