What was your most memorable moment?
My first day at school and my first time in court at a Social Security Hearing representing a homeless client in a Disability Benefits claim. And I am looking forward for my Asylum hearing this coming April; I am sure that will also be one of the most memorable moments in law school.

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through this experience without…
My family, my fiancé, friends, and the support from the Maryland Law community, peers, professors, and mentors.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
I’ve had many mentors throughout law school, and they have all been instrumental in guiding my path. I am deeply appreciative for their advice and encouragement throughout this journey.

What did you learn about yourself while earning this degree?
That sometimes I push myself too hard and I forget to appreciate and enjoy everything that is happening in my life.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
I don’t have a favorite professor, they have all been amazing and I am so thankful to all of them for their dedication to education and academia.

Write a message.
I am immensely grateful to everyone who helped me get through these three years: family, friends, peers, colleagues, professors, administrators, etc. Without you, I would likely not have been able to achieve this huge milestone. I share this accomplishment with all of you – you know who you are. !Mil gracias!
