One's dream and aspirations to supersede in life must be stronger and greater than limitations set forth by others. The experience that were bestowed to me during my short life has elevated me to the woman I am today. Please walk with me as I give you the opportunity to see the world from my eyes:

To be the person that I am now, I had to reflect and accept accountability of my past actions.

I stand a proud woman whose destiny became my backbone, which lead my heart to believe again. Through all my trials and tribulations, I stand humble to know that I have made it this far, to stand side by side with my determination to become a law student. A law student, who will go on to pass the Bar, and complete one’s destiny to become a lawyer, a lawyer who will stand strong, proud, and humble to help families overcome their legal obstacles.
