Why did you choose the College of Law?
I chose FSU College of Law because I felt it would provide me the best education in Florida and an even better opportunity to network. FSU Law, being in the heart of Florida’s capital city, provides a unique experience for students. I knew that with my goals of studying public interest law and service, Tallahassee was the best place for me. 

What do you feel is unique about Tallahassee and/or the College of Law? 
I love the welcoming environment at FSU Law. Whether it be faculty or staff, every person truly wants what is best for each member of the community. It is an environment you do not find at a lot of schools. Tallahassee is also a great place. It is a great college town if that is what you are looking for, but it also provides a unique experience as it is Florida’s capital city. Being at FSU Law, you are just minutes away from the capitol building, Supreme Court of Florida, and so much more. The proximity allows you to network with individuals in all levels of local and state government. 

What has been your most challenging experience in law school thus far?
The transition! Transitioning from undergrad to law school isn’t easy for anyone, but I found the transition to be particularly difficult since I had spent so much time out of the classroom due to the pandemic. Spending the last year and a half taking classes online and then jumping back into a full course load, with the added pressure of it being law school, wasn’t easy. 

Why did you become a student ambassador?
I believe that representation matters! Meeting a student ambassador with a similar cultural background played a huge role in my choice to attend the FSU College of Law—it made me feel like there was place for me in the community. I hope to be that person for someone!
