MHC Intern Life: Campbell Whyte
21 July 2021 | 1 min ⧖
As part of our MHC Life Series, intern Campbell Whyte talks us through leaving the US to study in Dublin, her love of French films, and being a certified diver.
What inspired you to choose law?
I was always good at reading and writing in high school in New York, and I thought Law would be a good use of my analytical and argumentative capabilities. It’s not possible to study Law as an undergraduate in the US, so I ventured back to Dublin, my natal city, for a Law and French degree. I paired Law with French because I have always loved the language and I even spent my year on Erasmus in France, which I will always look back on fondly.
Where did you study and why?
I studied at Trinity College Dublin because it was in a city that felt like home, had a reputation for excellence, and in my opinion, had the best international outreach and reputation of any college in Ireland.
What department are you working with in MHC?
I am currently in the Insurance and Risk department.
What pastimes do you enjoy?
I am a certified scuba diver and have been on diving holidays with my family. Closer to home, I love the simple joys of watching French films, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing piano, and singing.
I fell in love with Vienna the first time I visited. It’s just such a beautiful city with a lovely atmosphere! I’m planning a road trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway with a friend this summer, but someday soon, a perfect holiday would be to Milan to see an opera in La Scala.
What was your first job?
My first job was as a summer camp counsellor. I worked in my high school teaching classes during the day and overseeing a dorm by night.
First impressions of MHC?
Everyone is very dedicated to their work, and I have really enjoyed the team spirit in my time here. The prioritisation of client service is compelling to me as an aspect that truly sets MHC apart.
