Personal Statement

I have always felt a need to help my community in any way I can, and being in the service of others has been foundational in making me who I am today. After learning of legal inequalities through an intro class in my high school education, I was inspired to dedicate my life to fighting for justice for those in need who are underrepresented. Through the opportunity to be an intern at the Maine Volunteer Lawyer's Project, I was able to start making this dream a reality and became even more energized to pursue this path. I've shared my love for serving the community as a club president on campus, leading our club in doing over 100 hours of community service. In the future, I hope to expand on these passions and help legislatively working towards equal justice.
