What inspired you to pursue a law degree?

The importance of both understanding people and the relationships in life with such people have consistently remained a guiding factor in the choices for my future. Since a young age, I have noticed the genuine enjoyment and satisfaction I have received out of meeting, communicating with, and helping people on a regular basis. This enjoyment of interacting with and helping people has been a main factor in leading me to pursuing a law degree.

Why did you choose OU Law?

I chose OU Law because along with being from Oklahoma, I am a first generation college student and not only was OU Law the best option for me financially but all of my family is in Oklahoma as well and I am big on family. I have also established many connections and mentors here during my undergraduate degree and really enjoy the atmosphere here at the University of Oklahoma. 

What is something most people don't know about you?

Something that most people do not know about me is that I am the fourth Ledger in my family line.
