Humans of Campus

 

As I was growing up, I never actually wanted to do law, it happened by chance and I had never planned on becoming a lawyer.

It was actually my mom who had suggested that I should pursue law because I was not really into maths and science. I gave Clat and my score wasn’t good enough to make it to the top NLUs. I was really stuck and did not know what to do. I gave SET and made it to Symbiosis, mind you Symbiosis Hyderabad, not Pune.

It was a new college and we were technically the first batch. Five years in a law school taught me everything. I had to be extremely independent and take my own decisions. My first year was extremely difficult because I could not adjust with people and faced a lot of mental hardships due to estranged relationships with friends.

First year itself taught me so much that I knew I was learning and growing. I slowly moved on and made new friends and talked to different people. I met some really amazing and beautiful people that made my life on campus better. They were always there for me and made sure that I was alright. A big shout out to you guys, you know who you are.

 

Law is a difficult course and there is immense competition and pressure. Projects, moots, research papers, internals, externals, client counselling, mediation etc., there were a lot of things to do. At one point I had no clue what I was doing and why I was doing it. There was so much pressure to score good grades and gain meaningful internships. I slowly started realising that this was not what I wanted to do. I mean, law is definitely a great stream for people who love it but I wasn’t really enjoying it.

Fashion was always something I wanted to do since eleventh grade. I never really had the courage to pursue it due to societal pressure but one part of my heart always wanted to give it a shot. When I was in my fourth year, I had decided that I had to follow my passion but wasn’t very sure about the process of the journey. I was figuring out various ways and means to work things out.

 

Fifth year was the most amazing year of my entire law school life. I enjoyed each and every day and had also cleared the blocks in my head. I knew what I wanted to do and was confident. We had campus placements and I got placed with an MNC as their in-house counsel. I wanted to be independent financially to fulfill my needs. Things were working out in my favour and I was extremely contented. I had decided to work and blog side by side. I did not plan anything and just want to go with the flow and do what I love.

I started my blog a month ago and I’m working hard to make ends meet. I am not sure as to where this will take me but I know for a fact that I’ll do anything and everything possible to not give up on my passion and stay consistent.
