The University of Oklahoma

3. What degree(s) have you earned?

4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?

Both my mother and my uncle are graduates of OU Law and it has always been my goal to attend law school at OU. I am very excited to continue the tradition of OU lawyers in my family. I know that with OU Law's impressive faculty and curriculum, I will obtain the best legal education here.

5. What is your favorite thing about OU?

My favorite thing about OU is the people. The students, professors, and people in the Norman community are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I also would be lying if I didn't mention how much I love OU football gamedays in Norman. It is incredible to watch our campus come alive on Saturdays during football season.

6. What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education?

As a junior in high school, I attended a leadership forum on law in Washington D.C. After actively participating in simulated trials, visiting top ranking law firms and law schools, and speaking with law professors about law school, I knew for certain that the law would be my career path.

7. What is an interesting fact about you?

I attended the University of Sydney the fall semester of my senior year. On one excursion, I was thrilled to go scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. As a certified scuba diver, it was the experience of a lifetime. We also went white water rafting and bungee jumped off of a 165-foot high cliff!
