Where are you from? How have your experiences here, or throughout your upbringing, influenced your passions and aspirations today?
I grew up in Seattle, Washington, and attended schools with strong social justice missions. Being exposed to social justice leaders and the work that they were engaged in while attending these schools really sparked my interest in and passion for social justice. And while I knew that I wanted to work on social justice issues, I wasn’t sure exactly what that work would look like. I came to see the law as a way to advance justice. I also came to realize that making the legal process more accessible and understandable for more people—particularly those most impacted by the law—could be transformative.
