Biography

Law school:

Making the connection:

I had always wanted to go to law school. But when my mother passed away, it reaffirmed my goal of becoming a public interest attorney.

Surviving law school:

Internships at non-profit organizations preserved my passion for public interest. Without these hands on experience and caring professors, I am not sure if I would be where I am today.

Favorite website(s):

Facebook because it is a way to connect with friends and family who you might not be able to communicate often.
