Hi, I'm Sheryl


I'm a Juris Doctor (J.D.) Candidate at the University of California - Davis, School of Law. I also hold a B.A. in Politics, with a focus in Political Theory. I currently study corporate and tax law. I plan on taking the February 2019 California bar exam.


About Me

I am a Singapore-born law student. I relocated to the United States in 2009 for my undergraduate studies and am now pursuing my law degree. My academic interest lie in political theory, corporate governance and corporate finance. My legal interests lie in transactional and tax law. Outside of the legal field, I provide freelance web development and related consultancy services. I plan on taking the California Bar and to practice in finance or tax.

Academia Highlights

I hold a B.A. in Politics and was published in my senior year in my college's undergraduate writing journal, Spectrum (2013). I was also a recipient of the 25th Annual Spectrum Award. In law school, I have received 2 Witkin Awards (Academic Excellence) for Trusts and Wills drafting and for Law of Corporate Governance. I am participating in 2 certificate programs for Business Law and Tax Law.

Interests

I enjoy participating in high-adrenaline activities, especially skydiving. I also enjoy baking, and cooking local Singapore cusine. I enjoy foreign langauges (I hold JLPT N3), and enjoy foreign language video games and musicals. You can also find me playing competitive MMOs and MOBAs in my spare time.
