I grew up in the suburbs of Orlando, FL with my two brothers and parents. My dad worked full-time for UPS and my mom worked as a paralegal during the days and attended law school at night. Needless to say, money was tight and many of my meals consisted of frozen pot-pies, cereal, and ramen noodles. These dreary meals are the reason I love to cook delicious ones now.
Since I was eight I knew I wanted to be an attorney. I use to write out my goals to remind me of what I needed to do, and the goals usually read: 1. Get a puppy 2. Get straight A’s 3. Get into UF 4. Travel the world 5. Go to Law School. I completed most of those goals, and I am currently working on the last one. I have compiled my resume, taken the LSAT, turned in my letters of recommendation, and have applied to law schools (many of which are top law schools). I even received e-mails from Harvard Law encouraging me to apply!
I am still hearing back from schools and as soon as more letters come in, I will update you!
