Cami Li has revealed she decided to study law in a bid to get justice for her sister who was killed after being run over by a "career criminal" when she was 21-years-old and Cami was just nine-years-old
Cami Li trained to become a lawyer after her sister was killed by a "career criminal".
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star surprised her reality show housemates by confessing she was a law student and it's now been revealed she decided to study the subject in a bid to get justice for her older sister, who was killed by a driver being chased by the police when Cami was just nine-years-old.
Cami shared: "It was 1996 - she was 21, I was aged nine. But the older and the younger sister are the closest, so it was very, very hard on me.
"That's why I wanted to become a lawyer because the injustice of that trial was just ridiculous. The guy was a career criminal.
"He stole a car, the police were chasing him, he ran a red light and he killed her.
"I took my law school admission test. I would love to pursue law but it would be very emotionally draining."
The 28-year-old beauty admits that while she is keen to complete her studies one day, she's worried she'd fall apart if she had to take on a case similar to her sisters.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "After what happened, I just keep imagining if there was a scenario like what happened with my sister, I'd get too emotionally involved."
However, US tattoo model Cami - who took a break from studying law after meeting former fiance Kirk Norcross - now has a master's degree in communication and hopes to pick up where she left off with her other studies in the future.
