With Gratitude

Whew, where do I start? Many thanks to ALL of my professors, but especially Professors Benítez, Vera, Dimant, Steinberg, Schaffner, Rogus, Morales, Ludwikowski, Galston, Zeman, Petterson, and Bailey, as well as Judge Golparvar and Dean Celorio. I learned so much from you all! Thanks also to the folks at CASA and the Legal Aid Justice Center, and to my fellow students from GW Law's Immigration Clinic, Prisoner and Reentry Clinic, Animal Welfare Project, and Family Law Pro Bono Project. You all were such wonderful mentors and colleagues! I also send my sincere appreciation to all the folks at College Park parkrun. I am so glad I discovered you so early on in law school--you really helped maintain my sanity! Lastly, and most importantly, thank you to my Mom, Dad, sisters, Grandma, Pop-pop, and all my aunts, uncles, and cousins; hopefully this is news to none of you, but you all mean the world to me. Best wishes to the rest of the Class of 2021!
