Recruitment and Retention Chair: Deandra Whitby


Deandra Whitby

Howdy! I’m a 2L from San Antonio, and I have a B.A. in Political Science from the University of North Texas. I took five years to volunteer, teach, and travel the world before enrolling in law school. I decided to attend Georgetown because its International Law program is one of the best in the country. Other then BLSA, I’m also a member of OutLaw.
I’d say that my 1L year would not have been as successful if it weren’t for the academic, social, and emotional support that I received from members of BLSA. The tutoring program and networking opportunities were fundamental to my success.

Practice Area Interest: Transactional

Myers Brigg Personality Type: IN(T/F)P

Why did you join BLSA?  BLSA provided a safe community.

What is your mantra or motto? Your life is what you make of it.

What advice would you give to your younger self?  I’d tell my younger self that life is not that serious and that everything will work itself out.
