Favorite Memory from GW Law

My time in law school and in DC has been filled with so many memories I'll never forget: the first days of learning how to be a law student, exploring my passion for animal law through on-campus organizations and internships, working with my own clinic clients and appearing in court for the first time, preparing legislation for DC Council, late nights spent with friends at the library, and everything else that has been a part of learning what it means to be a lawyer and advocate.


With Gratitude

To my parents: You have supported me and encouraged me each and every day. Your enthusiasm for my dreams, education, and future means the world to me, and I couldn’t have done this without your love and support. Thank you for all you do for me and for helping me get where I am today, every step of the way. I love you!


To my family and friends: Thank you for your love and support from near and far through my entire law school journey. It means so much to me.



To my GW Law friends: Thank you for making these three years unforgettable and so much fun. You have helped make DC and GW my second home. I am forever grateful to have had you to go through this law school journey with me. We did it!



To my GW Law professors, especially my clinic professors: Thank you for your mentorship and for making my law school experience so rewarding, educational, and inspiring.
