Summer 2021

The treacherous LSAT, the hours of writing personal statements, and the sadly anticipated rejections had all led to the days filled with independence, the summer before law school. For the first time in over a year, I began to spend less time worrying about my next steps and more time on getting to know myself. The road to law school is difficult, time consuming, and all-encompassing so, when I submitted my final tuition deposit, I knew it was time to finally focus on the person who seemed to go missing through the whole process, me. My days leading up to law school were spent enjoying the Los Angeles sun with my dog in Malibu, meditating, and catching up on one of my favorite shows Big Brother. More importantly, I set goals and reminded myself of my purpose in taking this time to relax prior to the new chapter ahead of me. The appearance of personal time this summer allowed me to regroup in order to put my best foot forward and take a leap into who I am today as a 1L at LMU Loyola Law School.
