As a youth, I started my journey in exploring my dream. At the age of fifteen, I was fortunate enough to land a competitive internship with Simpson Thacher and Bartlett, LLP, a corporate law firm. Although I was only an information technology intern, I had the ability to network with partners with whom I still keep in touch to this day. From this experience, I gained the momentum to apply to a wide range of fellowships and scholarships.
I am currently a rising sophomore at John Jay College, where I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Humanities and Justice Studies, with a double minor in Philosophy and History. In addition to having a sincere interest in corporate law, I am also interested in litigation work as a district attorney. These aspects of the law capitalize on a range of skills that I have developed. As the co-founder of the Mock Trial Association at John Jay College, I had the ability to define a new style of argument by using my rhetorical skills. In addition, law stimulates my desire to learn through identifying small details to formulate a cohesive argument.
With the assistance and guidance of NYNY, I intend to take advantage of all opportunities offered. I will make the best of all available resources. I see my network expanding ten-fold with the guidance of this organization.
