Hello Jury of Peers!!

I am so excited to be back for my second year as a blogger! I have loved my experience at Loyola Law School and am ready to share my journey as a 2L. Before we get into the nitty gritty of law school life, I’d like to introduce myself to you so that you get a better idea of who I am, both as a law student and a blogger!

Before Law School

I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. You’d be surprised how many times I’m asked this but no, I don’t live in a hotel. Currently I am currently back at home with my parents and younger sister. I went to UC Irvine for undergrad (Zot! Zot!) and was a double major in Business and Drama.

I also ran an improv team, a group still close to my heart, and was a producer of an on-campus comedy festival. I love to plan and host events, and create spaces for people have to have a good time in!

Law School

Like I said, I’m a 2L student in the Day Division; I’m interested in Entertainment Law and Civil Litigation; and I’m really involved “on” campus! I am part of student government (Day Student Bar Association), a mentor of Women’s Law Association, a student ambassador, and a staffer on International and Comparative Law Review.

Before you think “whoa that seems like a lot of stuff, should I be that involved?!” – just know this: it’s not as much as it seems and I promise I will address juggling this all in a future post!

I’m a first-generation law student and it definitely took my entire 1L year to get into the groove of law school but now I feel much more in tune with the expectations and the strategies for success.

Overall, I really like law school. It’s the most academically challenged I have ever been but that’s honestly what I enjoy about it. Huddling together with my friends in a freezing cold study room trying to go through Professor Ides’ practice problems was actually … fun.



Outside Law School

Outside of law school, I love to be creative. I am a singer, songwriter, comedic improvisor, and podcast host in my spare time, of which there is admittedly very little. Finding time for the things that make me happy is truly the only way to stay sane in law school. I find that strengthening your creative muscles can help you in law school as well.

I’m also a huge foodie. I love to make and eat different foods even though my tongue is extremely averse to spicy food. I love to bake for my friends, but for right now, it’s just my family and I eating a lot of baked goods.

I can’t wait to keep sharing my 2L year with you and share all the great stories still to come!

See you in the next one,
