I am a 2L, originally from Hempstead, New York. I graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Government/Political Science. Being a part of BLSA has given me the tools to “see the forest through the trees.” Through BLSA, I get to participate in advocacy programs, community engagement programs and social activities, all of which constantly reinforce the notion that the law is more complex and important than what you learn in your classroom. At GULC, I’m a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Division of the Barrister’s Council. I chose GULC because I wanted to study law in D.C., and after attending Georgetown for undergrad, I knew that I would have the support necessary to be successful at this stage of my education.
