Network, network, network!

The idea of networking seems to strike fear into the hearts of the meek. It feels formal and daunting. It pushes shy people far outside their comfort zone. I’ll admit that it can be incredibly intimidating, but it is one of the greatest skills you can gain. Before I started law school, I recall my […]

Full steam ahead to spring

BU Law Tower, bastion of higher learning and holder of the sacred books, you stand tall beside the Charles, casting your white clouds upon the gray skies. Oh, and you’re hot as blazes! During her opening address to the class of 2016, Dean O’Rourke cautioned us to “wear layers.” I wrote it down with a […]

Wake Up and Draw the Roses

The City of Boston has a lot to offer.  Unfortunately, many people become consumed with their professional lives and fail to see all of the great opportunities right around them.  Law students are exceptionally susceptible to this fate.  I, for one, wish I would have taken the chance to do more things in Boston during […]

A World Of Opportunity

It’s a small world. Don’t get me wrong, there are many different countries separated by oceans and mountains, but in the end I think there is more connecting people than keeping them apart. We may come from places with cultures that have rich histories and traditions, yet we can still relate to one another on […]

Dressing the Part

Halloween is quickly approaching. A night filled with all sorts of sweets, plenty of parties, and more costumes than one could ever imagine. It can be a lot of fun to dress up and go out with friends. Putting on a mask allows us to become someone else and adopt a new personality for the […]

Celebrating Diversity

Key Note Speech for the Boston Community Leadership Academy Event

I have been lucky enough to be selected to do the morning keynote speech this Friday for the BCLA youth leadership event. This is a great honor. I am excited to be able to connect with the youth and use my story as a way of inspiring them. It is especially great to use my […]

Semester in the Governor’s Office

If you looking for a great way to spend your final semester in law school I would highly recommend participating in the Semester in Practice program (SIP). I have been able to spend my last semester working everyday in the Office of the Governor’s Legal Counsel. I have had the opportunity work on regulatory issues, gaming issues, […]
