My amazing and supportive classmates.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Professor Michael Millemann was my supervisor as a research assistant and my professor for Legal Profession. Working with and learning from him had a huge impact on me because his passion and dedication to using the law to help the less fortunate, and his wealth of experience in doing so, are incredibly inspiring. Professor Millemann not only made me realize I did in fact want to practice law, but also showed me the type of lawyer I want to be. Another mentor has been Andrew D. Freeman, the partner I work for at Brown Goldstein & Levy, who has taught me so much about how to be a great lawyer.

What did you learn about yourself while earning this degree?
I learned that nothing is undoable for me if I love what I am doing, and that I love the law more than anything else I have ever pursued.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
My favorite professor was Michael Millemann. He always went out of his way to be as supportive and helpful to the students as possible, and also to make his classes as engaging and practically useful as possible. His genuine love for teaching and mentoring was palpable. Any student who talks to him for more than five minutes walks away inspired. Working with him as a research assistant was the highlight of my time in law school.

What was your favorite class and why?
My favorite class was a First Amendment seminar with Professor Mark Graber because of the fun and fascinating discussions we got to have in class, and because of Professor Graber’s casual mastery of Constitutional Law. Professor Graber was one of the few professors to genuinely make me laugh with his jokes.

Write a message.
First, I want to thank my fellow evening students. So many people talk about how competitive law school is, and it is, but the evening class had a unique sense of solidarity and mutual support. In particular, I want to thank Cherie Deogracias, Rachel Iacangelo, and Evan Kelly, for always being there when I needed them. I also want to thank Bianca Spinosa for helping me get my Law Review comment published. I would also like to thank my mother for working so hard to make everything I have accomplished possible. I want to also thank my friends for always understanding when I was too busy to spend time together and for always being supportive. Lastly, I want to thank the amazing professors and support staff at the law school.
