Law

After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Neuroscience in 2016, and working in my field for a few years, I set my sights on law school. I was offered admission to 10 schools across the country, and $1 Million in scholarships from coast to coast. I decided to pursue her Juris Doctorate at the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Currently, I'm in my first year, where I'm a Fellow of the Nathaniel R. Jones Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice and a 1L Rep within the UC Law Student Bar Association. I'm also a Cite Checker for the Human Rights Quarterly, as well as the Intellectual Property and Computer Law Journal.
