My name is Kasey Considine, and I have bounced around quite a bit in the last few years. From Boston to Baltimore, from Cambodia to China, I finally landed in Lawrence, Kansas. I hail from Boston but did my undergrad at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland. I majored in writing/history with a minor in Asian studies. I studied abroad in Beijing while at Loyola Maryland, and decided that after graduation I wanted to return to explore Asia some more.
Before coming to law school, I indulged my travel dreams and taught English in Baoji, Shaanxi, China. While I was over there trying to figure out my life, I decided I wanted to combine my passion and love for all things Asian with my practical strengths in reading and writing. This is how I ended up at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas.
What I love about KU is that it has one of the most unique and difficult-to-find dual degree programs. I am working on my J.D. and M.A. in East Asian Languages and Cultures. This is just one of a dozen dual degree programs that KU currently offers. It works for me because I can turn my love of travel and studying Asia into a career that utilizes my intellectual strengths. This means I'll be able to use my interdisciplinary degrees to expand my job search and graduate with a job that excites me, or at least pays me to travel, because I'm not quite done indulging my travel dreams.
