I've been on the legal path for over a decade and I've learned a lot along the way which I'm excited to share! My goal is to support aspiring lawyers on their journey into the profession and explore ways to optimise our performance and well-being in the pursuit of curating a healthier, happier, and more successful life.

My journey so far...

1994 - 2007

I was born and raised in Greater Manchester, and I'm half-British and half-Syrian. After completing primary school, I went to stay with my aunt in Syria for one year to learn Arabic.

2007 - 2012

When I returned home, I joined Wilmslow High School. Initially, my performance at school wasn't the best; I was bottom set for almost every subject until year 9 when my maths teacher changed my attitude towards learning. I realised I wasn't applying myself and from that point forward I went on to do quite well in school. I was Captain of the badminton team, and I played as a winger for the rugby team.

2012 - 2013

After finishing Sixth Form, I took a gap year, worked at Gourmet Burger Kitchen, and flew out to Australia and Southeast Asia to go backpacking with a close friend.

2013 - 2017

I came home to start at The University of Sheffield, studying Law and Criminology (LL.B). After graduating I decided to complete a Master's in Corporate and Commercial (LL.M).

2017 - 2019

After graduating, I worked as a construction paralegal for Addleshaw Goddard LLP, before leaving to volunteer at Manchester Crown Court's Witness Service which inspired me to become a criminal barrister. I went on to complete several mini-pupillages before interning at a death-row office in New Orleans, Louisiana.

2019 - 2024

When I returned to the UK I secured a full scholarship from Lincolns Inn for the Bar Training Course, graduating in 2020 with a Distinction. Shortly after graduating, I signed on to Universal Credit before securing a job at the Information Commissioner's Office. I decided to set up my YouTube channel to support aspiring lawyers and later that year I secured pupillage with the Crown Proseuction Service.
