What a wild ride this has been. Thank you Maryland Carey Law for helping me to grow as a student, advocate, and person. Specific thanks to Baltimore Outreach for Student Success, the Moot Court Board, and my clinic family for constantly reminding me why I came to law school in the first place; and to my friends, family, professors, and fellow public defenders for the continued support to always fight the good fight.

Class of 2020 – our journey is only just beginning, and I can’t wait to see where the future takes us.
