Anything else we should know? I’m a hard working individual that thrives off the energy of others. I’m excited to move on in my academic career and pursue the occupation that generates a substantial amount of jubilance in my life. I’m passionate about law and the system of laws, more importantly the debates that are within the litigation process. The process to perfectly craft an argument, critically analyze the law, and then synthesize the components into an elegant speech full of persuasion to defend your side, seems to be an exhilarating experience that I wish to pursue.
