Meet our Interns


Shonte Humphrey


Hi, my name is Shonte and I am a Law graduate. I graduated in November 2019, from the University of Law (Bloomsbury campus). I currently work in an estate agent; I have a YouTube channel and I also started a blog. I have also been learning Spanish via the app Duolingo and my grandad has also been teaching me. During this pandemic, I enrolled in a Harvard online course – Computer Science for Lawyers and completed a Python 3 tutorial course. Having been furloughed, it was the perfect time to learn new skills.
