"Find a job you love and you will naver have to work a day in your life." The greatest pleasure in life is to passionately do exactly what you love. Law school as we know creates your character, discipline, habits and gives unforgettable experience. It’s the last year now for me in law school. I am interested in Private International Law and would be very satisfied to proceed my education in London. (I study in Bulgaria now). As I look back I realize how much I have done this past five years. It’s not only the lectures, those sleeples nights and hard work, but also the friendships and the experience. Not long after I started working in Attorney at Law did I realize that this is my calling. There is no such feeling in the world as realizing you help others solve their own problems. My religion is simple: what you think-you become, what you feel-you attract, what you imagine-you create. So take care of your thoughts, intentions and dreams cause they become things!

It’s Just Not Your Day

A customer runs in through the door in an obvious state of distress.)

Me: “Hello, can I help you? Do you have an appointment?”

Customer: “WHAT DAY IS IT!?”

Me: “[Date].”

Customer: “WHAT DAY?!”

Me: “Wednesday…?”

Customer: *weeping in obvious terror* “MAKE IT NOT BE!”

Me: “How… how would I make it not be Wednesday?”

Customer: “MAKE IT BE TUESDAY! PLEASE!”

Me: “I… can’t. I’m sorry.”

(The customer ran outside, screaming. I found out later that he was going to lose his house if he didn’t make a payment by Tuesday, and he’d forgotten to. I’m still not sure how I was supposed to time-travel for him, though.)

Though only seven years old when we immigrated to Canada, the thought of revisiting my homeland, Guyana, has never suggested itself since departure. When I allow myself to consider why, I realize that I have intentionally suppressed every opportunity for it to return, even with the knowledge that the visit would be temporary. The idea alone invites flashback upon flashback, all unpleasant.
I still remember that night so vividly—it was 30 am, October 14th, 2002. Bullets from every angle, shattering the peace of the night as window panes crashed inwards and bullets became our bedmates. I remember barely daring to open my eyes, dreading the damage. My father lay on the ground helplessly, his arm the picture of carnage. Next to him, a pistol, shell casings spilt across the floor. I watched as my mother, a strong, competent woman of the subcontinent, cry as she ran to help him. Thankfully the next morning brought the light of good news. My father would survive his injuries.
As my father began to recover in the following days, one thing became overwhelmingly clear. Our family could not remain in Guyana. Typical of the country, the shooting was never properly investigated and no charges ever made. Canada presented itself as an idyllic refuge for immigrants to seek a better life and raise children. This migration to North America is how my law journey began.
I'm often asked "why law school?" Why this career, that requires long hours and essay upon essay and research until you're bleary eyed, when there are so many other options. It was simple. have a responsibility, as a son and as a victim of a blatantly ignored act of violence, to honour the incredible sacrifices my parents have made and contribute to the prevention of mishandled and un-prosecuted cases. My parents worked 14-hours a day and seven days a week when we first moved to Canada. Their sacrifices have been endless, all to allow me to pursue my dreams. Beyond that, no matter how cliche, seeking justice for individuals that receive little to no assistance and are often marginalized has always been a worthy cause to me.

(I am a paralegal, and part of my job is to keep telemarketers and scammers from getting through to my boss.)

Guy: *on Phone* “Hello, am I speaking to the business owner?”

Me: “I am her assistant; may I help you?”

Guy: “Yes, I am [Obviously Fake Name] from [Obviously Fake Help Center], and I am calling to alert you that your computer has a virus!”

Me: “Oh, really?”

Guy: “Yes, and in order to salvage all your data, you will need to provide us with—”

Me: “Okay, first of all, I am fully aware this is a scam.”

Guy: “Miss, I assure you that—”

Me: “Second of all, you do realize you’ve called an attorney’s office?”

Guy: “…”

Me: “A practicing attorney on friendly terms with three local court judges. And whose caller ID identifies your phone number as [phone number], your business name as ‘Unlisted, Unknown,’ and YOUR name as—”

Guy: *slams down the phone*

Attorney: *from her office next door* “You are the first and best line of defence!”

Ever since I was a child I knew I aspired to be an attorney. So far I have completed an internship with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida and I am currently a law clerk for Southern Legal Counsel. I have recently come out as a male to female Transgender and understand the pressing need to represent those who are marginalized. As someone who identifies closely with a marginalized group I understand intimately how people who do not fit into a binary “norm” are treated. Having had the privilege of pursuing a legal education, I intend to apply the skills I have gained throughout my law school career to advocate for equal rights under the law for those who are underrepresented.
