I am 23 years old. I was a psychology major and philosophy minor at FIU in Miami, FL. My Hometown is Miami, FL.
What made me want to become a lawyer was growing up watching shows like Law & Order and Suits. I liked the idea of advocating for others and representing people in complicated times.
I chose Syracuse University College of Law because of the location. It’s in New York, a large state where there’s many opportunities, but it’s not in the city or anywhere busy where I can become distracted. It is also close enough to the city, to the Adirondacks, Catskills, Canada, and other states so if I want to get away from this small town, a day trip is an easy option.
What I wish I knew before applying to law school was the admissions process. For example, I wasn’t aware that a scholarship was negotiable until I was deciding the winner between my last 2 schools.
At SUCOL, I’m a Peer Mentor, Student Ambassador, Animal Legal Defense Fund E-Board member, and a General member of Latin American Law Student Association
One of the most interesting jobs I’ve had at SUCOL is an internship at VLP in Syracuse. They were able to get me a work order so I could actually represent people in court, in front of a judge, as a law student. I not only learned a lot with the attorneys but I also was able to experience work and what being an attorney truly is. Not many students get that opportunity as a student, nevertheless as a first year law student.
In my spare time, I like hiking with my dog, reading, and watching movies.
