Student Profile: Candice Diah (’17)

Name: Candice Diah

Home country: Nassau, Bahamas

Why I chose Wake Law: Wake Forest School of Law stands out as a law school that fosters the humanitarian aspect of a legal career. Every clinic and Pro Bono program is led by students and professors who are passionate about these causes. That kind of passion is a big part of the culture here at Wake Forest Law and a major part of the reason I chose to attend.

Undergraduate school and major: I studied International Business and Marketing at the University of Tampa.

Hobbies and interests: I’m interested in cultural studies and foreign languages. I studied French language, arts, and culture as an undergraduate. I still enjoy French cinema and literature in my free time.

Something I am looking forward to at law school: I’m looking forward to the first time I can apply what I’ve learned in the classroom to someone’s real-life needs. The practical application of a legal degree is very versatile; I’m excited to take advantage of that.

Campus involvement: I am a member of the Advanced Directive Pro Bono Project and the Black Law Student Association.

How I volunteer my time: I am an advocate of women’s empowerment, which played a great role in my decision to volunteer with several projects related to domestic violence. In addition, I’ve worked with projects in the realm of education and youth development.
