Valerie Cantave


I was born and raised in Boca Raton, FL and attended Florida Atlantic University for undergrad. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and a minor in Business Law. I am currently a 2L at Georgetown Law, and my first year was a great one; I owe a lot of that to BLSA. Being a member of BLSA gave me the opportunity to meet a number of individuals who really wanted to help me succeed. Being a member of BLSA also influenced me to become more civically engaged and more aware of the issues that need to be resolved in our society. BLSA gave me a family that I am so grateful and proud to be a part of.
