Most rewarding experiential learning activity

Representing two clients in the Individual Representation Clinic, from initial interviews through the hearings in administrative court and superior court.

Favorite UC Hastings leadership role

Leading a Criminal Law discussion group in Spring 2020.

Issues that spark your passion

Lack of equal access to quality legal representation.

Particularly meaningful honor

The CALI Award in Constitutional Law, which I won in Spring 2020—an especially meaningful achievement because the coursework was challenging and we had to adjust to a new way of learning during the pandemic.

Dream job

Litigating challenging, high-profile cases. I want to take on the most difficult cases for clients and provide them with excellent representation.
