I decided to attend Brooklyn Law School for its large student-led organization, Brooklyn Law Students for the Public Interest, and for the Sparer Fellowship Program. Both programs support public interest careers by providing vast networks that connected me to opportunities and lasting friendships, mentors, and summer funding that allowed me to live as I pursue my goal to provide justice for the community.
It's a very empowering moment for students when they realize what a powerful tool law can be... That is a joy, and that's what I teach.
