Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Professor Maureen Sweeney and Gabriela Kahrl have helped guide me throughout law school, calmed me when I was feeling uncertain, built up my self-confidence and encouraged me to pursue career options even if I felt unworthy. They are the best mentors anyone could ask for. Professor Rena Steinzor was a wonderful mentor my 1L year. She helped make the first year of law school so much easier and less confusing to navigate. Lastly, Teresa Schmiedeler has been an amazing mentor and resource for MPILP and with helping us effectively run the organization.
What did you learn about yourself in law school?
I am capable of more than I think I am.
