Undergrad: United States Military Academy at West Point

I was really excited about the prospect of living in a large cosmopolitan city during my law school years. But I also didn’t want to be in a huge class where no one knows my name. At USC, I feel like I’m part of a community and I genuinely enjoy the activities I've decided to be involved in. I coach the USC Women’s Rugby Team and am in the Black Law Students Association. Academically, my best experience at USC has been competing in Moot Court - building my advocacy skills through that program has been both fun and rewarding! As a professional soldier, I find that my goals are at times different from those of my classmates, but at the end of the day, we are all here to get a quality education and prepare for meaningful legal careers. I know I've been nothing less than pleased with my Trojan Family!
