Favorite Memory from GW Law

My favorite memory from my time at GW Law would be participating in the Domestic Violence Clinic and Family Law Pro Bono Project. I, along with several other law students, was able to protect D.C residents and DV victims by preparing court documents, conducting intake, and simply being compassionate.


Favorite Quote

"When we show up, act boldly, and practice the best ways to be wrong, we fail forward. No matter where we end up, we've grown from where we began."

With Gratitude

I thank my mother, father, friends, mentors, and family for supporting me throughout this entire journey. I give special thanks to all of my professors, for you have given me the best legal training and lifelong advice I could ask for.
