I chose law to be in a challenging, diverse and engaging career. I knew it was a profession that would allow me to make an impact and a difference in the world around me. In law you are always constantly learning new topics and searching for creative ideas, so every day is new and exciting.  I also thought I would need to be better at math to become a doctor.
