I started DCTA in the summer after my first year of law school while studying abroad in the United Kingdom. I’m delighted to say, as of today, having submitted my final paper and not having any exams, I’m done law school!
The law and my passion for loyalty points and travel has been tied, leading to a number of legally analytical posts, and even a forthcoming publication in the Annals of Air and Space Law (McGill) on the topic of mistake fares (which I will be posting once formally published). I’ve started a successful award booking business, having earned national attention on a number of media outlets. Further, I’ve travelled hundreds of thousands of miles, furthered my relationships, met amazing people, and learned exciting new ideas both in and out of the loyalty business. To say the least, the past three years have been an amazing adventure.
Where to next? I don’t know. I haven’t yet found an articling position (if any law firms are hiring, shoot me an email *wink*), but my business is going very well so I’ll probably focus on that until I found my place. I’ll probably give more attention to DCTA, which I admit has been lacking lately. I’m also doing a huge amount of travel until the end of July – I’m going to California next week, then to Vegas for the Freddie Awards. In May I go to Budapest/Vienna/Prague, and in July, Shanghai/Hong Kong/Japan/Bali/Thailand/Egypt/Germany.
So that’s about it. I’m currently in limbo, and expect DCTA to get better. Sorry for the un-pointy post, just a big day in my life and it’s very exciting!
As always, thanks for reading.
