What is your first memory of the school, (and if relevant, how did that influence you)?

I came from a co-ed primary school and it was quite a culture shock to walk into a sea all full of girls on my first day of school at Maryknoll in F.1!  However, while the shock was short-lived, many of my oldest and dearest friendships are from those secondary years at Maryknoll.I always remind myself to treasure what I get and give back whenever I have the opportunity.

As a Councillor, what ambition or aspirations do you have?

I have only the fondest memories of my years as a student at Maryknoll.  I am honoured to have the chance now to serve the School so that hopefully, like myself, future generations of Maryknollers too, when they look back on their time at Maryknoll, will have only the fondest memories of our beloved school.

What kind of skills, knowledge, or contribution do you bring to the school as a Councillor?

Having been a lawyer both in private practice and in-house, I will bring both my legal training and practical experience to assist in the running of the Foundation.
