What was your most memorable law school moment?
My most memorable moments were sitting with my law school friends in the library and study rooms talking about school, family, the news and everything in between. Not feeling alone throughout law school is something I will not forget.

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through law school without…
the support of my family and friends, and without my law school classmates who went through some of the same experiences.

What did you learn about yourself in law school?
I learned that I could get through tough situations, that I had the strength to ground myself mentally, physically, and spiritually. I also learned that “if there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, it’s myself.” -Beyonce.

Write a message.
I want to say thank you to my family and friends for their support, prayers, and encouraging words throughout this journey. I don’t know how I would have made it without you all checking in and making sure that everything was okay. Every time I heard “I am proud of you” it gave me the boost I needed to keep going. Thank you for all your love.
