Her Own Words
"The classes at William & Mary provide a rich learning environment in which I am blessed with the support of amazing classmates and dedicated faulty. Whenever I have a question or need assistance with absolutely anything from academics, to my job search, to personal matters, my fellow classmates and the school faculty are always there to help. Meanwhile, my volunteer work through the school has allowed me to continue to grow professionally. I know that William & Mary is preparing me to become a competent and well-rounded citizen lawyer."
