I have focused on letting my hard work do the talking in my career.
I know how important it is to have role models in order to inspire you.
9Every field has its own challenges
I think there are challenges for everyone regardless of their gender and race to succeed in law as it is one of the most competitive fields to enter which includes investment banking.
I want to do everything that I can to help increase diversity not only in Britain, but globally!

The most optimistic and intelligent way to look at your career is to collect experiences throughout your career, whether that be with a few employers or ten, with one business function or five or in one country or three.
