Favourite interview question
"A classic: Two men are stranded on an icy mountain. They have run out of food. If they don't find food soon, then both men will die. One man then kills the other and eats him in order to survive, due to necessity. Is it murder? Should it be considered murder? (Also, I was asked: What on Earth is Chelsea Football Club?)"
Hi! I'm Jish, a Malaysian student who recently graduated from Merton College, Oxford with a BA in Jurisprudence (fancy Oxford talk for Law) in June 2015, and who is currently in London studying the LPC in preparation for a training contract with an American firm's London office.
When I was young(er), one of my teachers once told a kid in my class that you're either born with intelligence, or you're stupid. That stuck with me because even then, the thought that a teacher could call one of their students stupid nauseated me. Since then, I've taken that feeling and solidified it into the belief that anyone can be brilliant, if they're just willing to give it time and effort, and to be brave enough to not compare themselves to anyone else and to just think in the way they know best. It's certainly worked for me.
