The most difficult, challenging, but also rewarding thing I have ever achieved is graduating from American Law School. I have never been more proud of myself, then the moment the Dean of Students called out my name on stage in front of hundreds of people, while giving me my diploma. It’s been exactly a year since I graduated, so in this blogpost, I want to finally share more about my experience going to law school for 5 years both in the Netherlands and in the US.View Post
STUDY & CAREER
Everything law (school), philosophy, university & career related.
We often feel like we don’t have enough hours in our day to accomplish everything we want to do. But that is not necessarily true. As one of my favorite quotes says: “You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé.” And in this video, I am going to share habits to boost your productivity that you can incorporate into your daily routine for 2019.View Post
In the days of social media, filled with images that create an unhealthy and unrealistic expectation of people’s bodies, abilities, and lives, focusing on your own self-worth can be quite challenging. As a law of philosophy graduate and philosophy student, I especially find it interesting to talk about this topic using philosophical theories. That is why in this third episode of Phililyphy (Philosophy with Lily), I am sharing what self-worth means to me, my process of learning and understanding what my self-worth is, and my tips and tricks to start living a life that values me as a person and how I stopped surrounding myself with toxic friends and relationships.View Post
Now that back to school season is in full effect, one of the most important (and probably also the most fun) things on your to do list should be shopping for your school supplies essentials. Over the past years I’ve been studying, I definitely discovered things that did and did not work for me. The items that I am going to show you today as my student school supplies essentials are truly tried and tested. If you’re curious in my musthaves for any student going to law school or university in general, keep reading!View Post
Starting law school can be a scary thing. As scary as thinking it is a good idea to watch that horror movie late at night when you are home alone, or finding a big spider above the ceiling of your bedroom (okay I have to admit, that one is possibly scarier than attending law school). Now that I have graduated, I can look back at my experience studying law and reflect on my personal journey. Even though I succeeded in getting that coveted law degree, I still wish I had done or knew particular things about studying at uni that I know now, before I actually started law school. In today’s blogpost – the very first in my new Back to Law School/University series, I am going to be sharing the things I wish I knew before starting law school/university.View Post
