Q. Did insurance choose you, or did you choose a career in insurance?

A. I chose to pursue a career in insurance. My father, being in the industry, inspired me and this influenced me to pursue a similar career path. I was also largely inspired by the accomplishments of Warwick Scott-Rodger, who showed that a law degree can be put to good use in the industry. I always knew I wanted to study law and this inspiration motivated me to attempt to follow a similar career path in the insurance industry.

Q. Why did you enter The Insurance Apprentice and what do you hope to gain out of it?

A. I joined The Insurance Apprentice to meet and interact with industry leaders and learn from their experiences, to allow myself to gain additional skills to become better at what I do. I have already gained skills through the elimination round, particularly the “shark tank” task as the criticism received allowed me to better develop my skills and put them to use, however, I still have much to learn and look forward to doing so as the competition progresses.
