Hello! My name is Catarina from the strikingly beautiful island of Madeira (Portugal), and I enjoy moonlight strolls on the beach, red roses by the armful, and participation of martial arts. Just kidding! I’m not a fan of any of those things (except the martial arts part where I have been doing karate for over 10 years and am a World and European champ). More seriously I’m twenty years old and a current second year law student in BPP law school and a professional procrastinator.
I dedicate myself to working in many Pro-Bono cases and also helping many ex offenders in giving advise about debt, mortgage and Joint enterprise etc, but also once a week attend homeless shelters and give basic advise.
I’m the co-founder BPP ratio show ‘The Legal Plug’ which helps students keep up with current affairs by streaming a live radio show every week. We aim to have a live radio show every week, which we will bring professionals from the field which we would discuss live, which shows I’m very passionate about raising awareness of Human rights but also commercial awareness amongst students hence the reason I want to become a U.S Attorney. My ability to work well with clients has been enhanced by my time working as a teacher assistant in teaching Maths, English and science to KS2 students which sometimes can also be an intellectual challenge.
