Dart Scholar Alumnus
University of Bristol, UK
International Business Management
Florence is currently doing her articles having received first-class honours in her graduate diploma in law and her legal practice course. Florence is an Olympic sailor, representing the Cayman Islands in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, which she describes as the biggest accomplishment of her life. She also competed in the Youth Olympics in 2014 and in the World Championships.
High school and university are a marathon not a sprint. Looking after yourself and being healthy limits the possibility of burnout.
Training for the Olympics taught Florence the importance of working hard to achieve her dreams, to be as ‘coachable’ as possible and to never give up. She applies these same principles to her work and personal life, aiming to be the best lawyer she can be and achieve the best results for her clients.
As a Dart Scholar, Florence interned every summer at Dart in a variety of roles, from HR and real estate marketing to investments. She appreciated having the exposure to different types of work in helping her make her own career choices.
Florence has yet to choose which field of law she’d like to specialise in, but with a competitive nature, she is determined to become an expert in whatever path she takes.
