1. Hola! My name is Nicole Christine Burgos Romero (long, huh?) and I am a third- year evening student.

 2. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico (and yes, I am also tired of hearing “Despacito”). 

 In fact, I moved here three years ago. Even though, I love California and its scenery. I must say that our beaches in Puerto Rico cannot be compared (Sorry!).

3. Before ever thinking to become a lawyer, I wanted to be an “Egyptologist.” 

Yes, that’s a thing! I grew out of it soon since Egypt is a world away from Puerto Rico. However, I am still obsessed with Egypt, think it has the best history ever, and secretly wish to become an Egyptologist.

4. I am obsessed with horror films and crime podcasts.

I think there is nothing more relaxing after reading about evidence than to watch a horror movie or listening to a good crime podcast. If you like crime podcasts, I TOTALLY recommend “Crime Junkie.”

5. I am a mom of a three-year-old.

I had my son and two weeks after I was finishing my last semester of college. So far, I see this as one of my biggest accomplishments. Also, having a kid and being in law school is super manageable; do not let anyone discourage you, if it is something you want to do.

6. Law School is not what I thought it would be.

Law school is nothing like “How to Get Away with Murder” because we have to you know… READ — sorry Ms. Keating! All jokes aside, law school is WAY better in real life, people are actually nice, cold calling is not that terrifying, and some assignments are fun.
