Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through this experience without …
peer commiseration, professors willing to mentor, and my supportive partner, Alivia.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Professor Natalie Ram has been a mentor since before I started law school. She helped me make the leap from bioethics to law, and helping advise at a number of crossroads throughout school. Professor Richard Bolt was the most impactful professor I had. He helped cultivate my passion for constitutional law and was in my corner while networking and considering career paths. And Professor Meltzer Henry has also been an important mentor, helping keep my progression in law school connected to my interests in bioethics and academia.

What did you learn about yourself while earning this degree?
There are many paths before me and I have the ability to write my own story. I am capable of, and will do, great things.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
A tie between Professors Van Alstine, and Boldt. Professor Van Alstine is the most charismatic and effective teacher I’ve ever had.

What was your favorite class and why?
Constitutional Law II, with Professor Boldt, was my favorite class. For one, it was my highest grade. But that’s because it was, and is, the most interesting area of the law, being ripe with broad philosophical, ethical, and political dimensions.
