Professor Michael Greenberger, who introduced me to the law of cybersecurity and financial derivatives. Professor Greenberger provided me with unbeatable opportunities to learn, develop my career, and network.

Law school showed me what my strengths and weaknesses as a person are. I learned how to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, be professional, and practice with a strong work ethic.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
My favorite Professor is Professor Greenberger. I first met him in his cybercrimes course as 1L. Since then, I have served Professor Greenberger as a Center for Health and Homeland Security Extern, teaching assistant, and research assistant. Professor Greenberger has shown me the incredible things that can be done with a law degree and I owe my choice of career to him.

What was your favorite class and why?
Business Planning with Professor Goldberg was my favorite course due to the experiential learning and practical subject matter. I had so much fun building an entity from the ground up and learning how to overcome complications in entity formation and corporate taxes. I walked away from the course feeling confident that I can effectively represent a business owner.

Write a message.
I have so many people to be thankful for during my law school career. First, I would like to start with my Mom, who has always believed in me and supported my dream to become a lawyer. She worked so hard to make a law degree attainable for me.

Next, I would like to thank my coworkers at MITRE, Oshkosh, and the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security. Under their supervision, I learned about life as a professional, how to be an effective employee, and remaining academically curious. People like Juan Arreaza from Oshkosh and Catherine Barrett from MITRE are always available when I am facing a tough decision. They have put an immense amount of effort into helping me build my legal network.

Finally, I would like to thank all of the friends from law school. I have been very fortunate to meet such genuine, gracious, and patient friends. They have always been there for me when life wasn’t going my way, and I appreciate their company more than they know.
