Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
I have had a few really great female professors who were always super encouraging. Also, the passion they have for their work is inspiring. They really make you want to succeed and provide access to justice.

What did you learn about yourself while earning this degree?
I learned how little sleep my body can function on. I learned that I have a really short attention span for online learning. I learned that despite all of the challenges, I am capable of getting a law degree.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
This is really difficult. I really enjoyed the class I took with Professor Goodmark. She is an incredible woman. She balances her personal life and her career and gives her all to everything she does. However, I also really enjoyed Professor Meadows. Her class was slightly different because it was clinic so there was less of a concentrated subject area. However, it was clear she is equally as passionate and dedicated. Both were personable and understood wanting a work life balance.

What was your favorite class and why?
Alternative Dispute Resolution. I took this class because I thought I wouldn’t’ get into clinic as a transfer student and needed experiential credits, but I loved Professor Dilloff. He was super funny and the class never felt like class. It was very informal and he always did his best to keep students engaged.

Write a message.
I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity I had to learn under each and every professor. Each of them was genuinely a master of their subject area. It was really nice to learn from people who love what they do. Also, sad professor Kovarsky left. Thank you all again. I hope you have a seamless return to in person instruction in the fall!
