Ms. JD Pre-Law: Interview with Christina Nguyen, Career Placement Committee Co-Chair, AABANY
Check out the recent Ms. JD interview of our Career Placement Committee Co-Chair Christina Nguyen by Genevieve Antono. Learn about Christina’s wonderful work as a volunteer coordinator and how she developed an interest in the law.
Backtracking a little, where did you grow up, and how did you first develop an interest in the legal profession?
Christina: Queens has always been my home and still is. I grew up in Queens, New York. My entire school education has been in Queens, from elementary school until law school. I developed an interest in the legal profession when I attended Townsend Harris High School. I had an interest in the humanities and religiously watched legal and criminal shows. As an undergraduate student at St. John’s University I studied legal studies and accepted multiple legal internships to determine if law school was a path I was planning to take. Through my multiple internships, I had the opportunity to work with amazing attorneys, who taught me how lawyers think, write, and analyze. They have all become great mentors and with such an amazing start to my legal career, I knew I wanted to become a lawyer.
Thanks for sharing, Genevieve! (Genevieve is one of AABANY’s most reliable and friendly volunteers, as well as Ms. JD Pre-Law Director.)
