Two or three days ago I was cleaning my old room and I found a very interesting paper from 2005. Back then I was 12 years old and a sixth grader and we were given a task to write an essay on “What you want to be when you grow up”. My essay started with the following sentence : When I grow up for about 10 years, I want to be a successful lawyer. Funny story ,when I was 12, people over 20 seemed to me like very matured and old persons, afterwards I realized that is not the case.
I remember that ever since I was a little girl I was fascinated by crime movies and tv shows. I loved watching how always the ‘bad guys’ would face the justice , go to court and get the punishment they deserve. But the best part was watching the lawyers, their movements, their speeches, the way they present evidence and I admired their knowledge. I even remember ‘forcing’ my brothers to play ‘court trial’ where I was one of the lawyers, one of them was a judge and the other was the defendant.
I was always pursuing my dream and still am. I finished high school in a program for advanced students I started Law School at “Justinianus Primus” Faculty of Law, which is the best law school in my country. I finished the three years of mandatory classes and got interested more in Intellectual property law rather than Criminal law.
After the summer internship in a Law Office in 2014 I decided to apply for a double degree program Master studies in IP law in the University of Strasbourg in France. I successfully finished my master studies and just last month defendant my master thesis ‘ The three step test in the international sources in the field of copyright’.
Even if my dream is not exactly the same as the original one I think that I managed to make it true. Now I am an intern in First instance court and I am living my dream. I am surrounded with people who I admire and after reading my paper from 2005 I realized that I am also becoming the person that I always wanted to be .
Follow your dreams and eventually they will come true.
