Meet Tiara Bonet!
A member of BPW/NYC, Tiara is a New York State licensed attorney. She currently works for a community-based legal service provider, representing tenants in their housing unit.
Where did you attend school?
I have a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and Media Studies from Hunter College. I graduated from American University Washington College of Law.
What brought you to this career path?
I became a lawyer because I wanted to work on telecommunication policy. I first became interested in this while in undergrad due to a course called Internet and Society. During my final year of law school, I was a part of my school's Disability Right Law Clinic. I realized then that I enjoyed direct legal services more and had a desire to help people.
How did you find BPW? What is one memorable experience you've had with the club so far?
I found BPW through a class in undergrad. The president of NFBPWC/NYC (then EPW-NYC) was looking for an intern and the class required practical experience. My most memorable experience is helping build the new BPW/NYC website.
How can the BPW club and its members help you on your career path? What do you wish we knew?
Networking and continued education are important parts of a legal career. I hope to meet other women that I can learn from.
