Philjay may not be running for mayor...yet, but it sure seems like he’s gearing up for it someday. If you’re not yet familiar with this charismatic guy, you will soon. I’m not really sure if this guy ever sleeps and I’m pretty sure he’s discovered a way to clone himself to be in more than one place at once. Not only is he a Juris Doctor Candidate at the New England Law School (geared to graduate next summer), but he’s also the Treasurer of the Student Bar Association, the President of the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, and the Campus Outreach Co-Chair of the Boston Bar Association. And that’s just his professional life. There’s his social life too. This super charismatic and social guy will have you wanting to attend every event and participate in every cause that he’s a part of. Want to know what else Philjay is up to?
