Growing up in a less-than-glamorous neighborhood taught me resilience and motivated me to rise above my circumstances. I didn't want to simply be a product of my environment; instead, I was determined to pave my own path toward success – and inspire others like me to do the same. My journey has reinforced the belief that it doesn't matter where you come from; with unwavering determination and hard work, you can achieve your dreams and make a true difference in the world.
My motivation was getting a law degree was that I had worked so hard for that I felt like I had done something great for myself and those around me. I wanted to get the ground work in law completed. I also thought how I could do pro bono work for those in need. Freedom in my career was also a consideration.
