I love to relax, go to spas, catch up with my favorite TV shows, exercise, read a book and have a lovely time with family and friends.

In giving back to my country by using the knowledge to improve the legal department back where I work, help other students, offer some help for the people who cannot afford hiring a lawyer whenever I can.

To be honest, "Ally McBeal" and "Boston Legal" are my favorite TV shows that motivated me to pursue a law degree. The book that inspired me the most is "Storming the Court," which is an inspiring law student's story that I really encourage students to read.
