With Gratitude

I want to thank everyone who has played a role in getting me through these past three years. First, I want to thank my family who has supported me unconditionally my entire life. I love you all! I want to thank my twin sister for being the best best friend anyone could ask for. Lauren, things are just more fun when we do them together, so I am so glad that we got to experience the postgrad life in DC together. I also want to thank all of my classmates and all of the friends that I have made here at GW Law. We laughed together, we suffered through intense study sessions together, and we all helped each other to become better future lawyers. I'm sorry that we couldn't celebrate our achievements together, but I truly appreciate you all. Special thanks to my day one law school friends and my law school ride-or-die who have stuck with me for all three years of law school. Meeting you all has been one of my favorite things about law school. Finally, I want to thank my professors who taught me so much about the law and about what it is to be a lawyer. Thank you for your dedication to your students, your willingness to help us achieve our full potential, and your interesting lessons.
