Favorite Memory from GW Law

GW Law is where I took the first steps for my future career and choosing a favorite memory has been quite difficult. It could be spontaneously sitting next to people in class only for them to become my best friends, the many times my professors made me laugh in class, or the quick runs to get more coffee before class started in 10 minutes. I will always be thankful for the things I've learned, the people I met, and the memories that I made :)

"I throw out an easy challenge. It sounds so simple but is kind of complex. It is just: 'Be Good. Do Good'"
 - Dr. Michael Doran, my late High School Principal

With Gratitude

With a full heart, I would like to thank my mom, dad, and brother, who have shown me the true meaning of persistence and hard work. Thank you for teaching me to study hard, treat everyone with kindness, and stand up for myself. "You taught me how to walk and I'll show you how to fly." I've been blessed with your love and kindness throughout my life, and your constant support serves as a lighthouse during the tumultuous times.
 To my closest friends, thank you for your constant encouragement, and all the late-night rants and spontaneous coffee meetings. To Michael, thank you for being an anchor in the rocky waters. 
 All my mentors and role models lead by example on how to be a better lawyer and better person, but a special shoutout to Professor William Kovacic, who always inspired me to work harder and be excellent and fostered my love for antitrust and the public sector. 
 To everyone else who has helped me along the way, the greatest source of inspiration is having someone believe in you, invest in you, and trust you with their friendship.
