University life and experience
Originally from Oxfordshire, Natalie decided to study at the University of Hertfordshire as it was within a two-hour radius from her hometown – making visiting friends and family easy. Not only was the University conveniently located, she was blown away by our Law programme. From our expert tutors and lecturers to our facilities, Natalie felt at home immediately at the University.
Natalie took full advantage of the opportunities on offer within Hertfordshire Law School including extra-curricular activities like mooting, debating, trips to Inns of Court as well as guest speakers who were regularly invited onto campus to lead debates. Not only did Natalie find these incredibly fun, but she says, these opportunities helped her gain confidence and have ‘really shaped the person I am now and has shown me that if you are willing to put your time and show commitment, then many other doors will open for you.’
Her favourite extra-curricular activity was being involved in the mooting team as she got to travel throughout the country, bound with her peers and receive extra support from lecturers. She describes the skills she learnt while on the team as ‘invaluable’ and the overall experience ‘fantastic.’
These experiences have been extremely beneficial throughout Natalie’s career. She says, ‘It was a great experience which gave me the confidence to speak in public, how to research and shape an argument, analytical skills and gave me a basic knowledge of contract and employment Law which have been useful in the operational side of running a business.’
Natalie is currently running her own company in Hong Kong as well as other ventures in Fintech and charitable organisations. She envisages her future will continue on this path enabling her to continue to learn, innovate and network.
