What first got you interested in pursuing law?
When I was six, I watched a documentary about a girl who fought to become the best lawyer at Harvard and I knew I wanted to follow in her footsteps. Her name was Elle Woods, and she’s an inspiration to all. I’m gonna be taking the Bar Exam soon, so I’m still going at it!
What’s one thing you’d change abut the law industry?
The clothes. There’s not much scope to have fun or explore clothing options—it’s just boring black and white all day, and it isn’t even an exciting combination; it’s just the same old shirt and pants.
What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
About two years back, I saw the news that Lady Gaga was doing a Las Vegas residency and it was on the day before my birthday, so I bought the tickets to that before I even figured out the flight situation. All the plans of our graduation trip ended up revolving all around that show.
Is there a Lady Gaga song that you feel describes you best?
Hair—the lyrics aren’t her best, but the general representation of freedom through hair resonates with me. I get bored with my look very easily, and so I’d change it up every couple of weeks, depending on my mood that day. I used to go home after my morning lecture to pile on the bleach and return to my afternoon classes with blue hair. Great for freedom of expression, not so great for the scalp damage.
Do you have any pet peeves?
Maybe the obsession with horoscopes—because I’m a Gemini and everything annoys me. But on a more serious note: using phones during conversations with people. I don’t get it, and it’s just rude. Also, people who don’t signal when changing lanes—I’m not a psychic, so please put on your indicators.
Is there a fashion trend you’ve never understood?
Slides with socks or Teva-style sandals with socks confuse me. If it’s cold enough for socks, then it’s cold enough for proper shoes.
