Favorite Memory from GW Law

I made great memories from my time at the Law School. And out of all these memories, I particularly cherish when, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Dean Dayna Bower has namely recognized me for the contributions I made to the World Bank publication for the Law, Justice, and Development Week 2020.


Favorite Quote

"By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain."

Apostle Paul

With Gratitude

As I am closing the Master's of Laws Chapter, which was challenging and exciting at the same time, I want to first express my gratitude to my God, without whom I could have never made it this far.
I am extremely grateful to my parents, particularly to my mother and grandmother.
To my dearest friend Axel and sisters Aissatou, Cassandra, Daysie, Donelia, Fatim, Helen, Marie-Alexandre, Rosa, and Yassine, thank you is a euphemism!
Finally, I express my heartfelt thanks to my caring, supportive and inspiring Professor and Dean: Rosa Celorio. I will be forever grateful for meeting her because my GW Law experience would not have been the same without her.
