“I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.”

I believe my drive stems from wanting to do absolutely everything I can for my parents. I would like to provide for them in the same way that they provided for me. As two people who have struggled and been there every step of the way, I would like to make them proud as they watch me accomplish my dreams.
Additionally, I hope to utilize my own education and experiences to mentor the next generation and give back to my community. Growing up, I was privileged to be surrounded by a strong support system; as my journey continues, I hope to be able to do the same for others. I want to be able to provide a support system to those that are not as fortunate. I want them to know that someone does care about their future and is willing to be there for them. More importantly, as a woman of color, I want to be a champion for those whose voices deserve to be heard.
Being a good lawyer also means being a relatable and compassionate human being. In a field that may be stereotyped as cutthroat, it is crucial to remain personable and honorable. I want people to know that every attorney is not a robot; rather, there are attorneys that will form a meaningful relationship with you and help you in any way they can. This world is about being there for others and I want to be there for you.
