It is with immense gratitude that I thank my loving husband, Victor, and my children, Victor, Gia, and Tamia for keeping me grounded, reminding me of what is important, and cheering me on when I didn’t feel like celebrating. A warm thank you to the BLSA community who has been a tremendous source of support and pride since I first stepped on campus. I will continue to pay that generosity of time and spirit forward. Likewise, though too numerous to name individually, I’d like to thank the esteemed GW Law faculty and staff for their guidance and support. My experience is all the more enriched because we crossed paths.
