1) Why did you choose Charleston Law?

I was attracted to the family-like community at Charleston Law. The faculty and students push you to succeed. Our school has an open-door policy where students can talk to their professors one-on-one about challenging concepts in class. In addition to a top-ranked faculty, the students motivate each other to strive for their best. I am grateful for the support of my fellow classmates who encouraged me to run for SBA President.

2) What is your dream job after law school?

I would like to be a policymaker where I can work to combat issues like the opioid crisis, human trafficking, and violence against women.

3) If your overall law school experience had a theme song, what would it be?

My law school theme song would be “Rise Up” by Andra Day. Law school is a roller coaster of emotions. On stressful days this song reminds me to persevere and keep my goals in mind.

4) What is your best advice for new law students?

Follow the “3Ps. ” 1. Be prepared for class (read, outline, etc.). 2. Participate in class. 3. Practice. Almost every professor has practice essays or multiple choice questions, so use them!
