Oct 2017 - He has been featured in  the National Jurist Magazine in the section  "The most interesting LL.M students in the America. He says " When I started FSU this fall, we had a series of meet and greets with members of the faculty administration and students. I am in an LL.M program with nine other students from across the world including India, Kenya, and Peru. I and my Chinese classmate Sky, are the babies of the LL.M batch and to a larger extent in the faculty, as Law is a post-graduate field of study in America. For being "so young and so mature", the interest started there. See link to online issue ( he is on page 28). It is also available in a printed version.
