A Cambridge law student with an aggregate 10+ months work experience disheartened by the subject's lack of room for innovative thought.

Need fast-pacing, challenging and flexible environments, preferably with an international flavour.

Has done countless MUN and European Youth Parliament conferences, and life-changing experiences at Harvard Summer programs, the last of which involved Systems Thinking and the Leadership module of the HBS MBA.

Has travelled extensively and speaks 3 languages. Builds great rapport, is committed and loyal. Challenges status quo's to explore new opportunities and ways of doing things. Seeks to build networks and partnerships, share ideas and deepen financial/management strategy knowledge.
