You know, after I graduated, it
was a chaotic time in the financial services industry, and I’d actually taken
a job with a company to join their management rotation on development
program. I had moved from Indiana to LA to Tampa back to LA to Charlotte, and so
it was a little bit unfortunate because although I was doing good work, there was
still a lot of uncertainty. I got to the point where my group was was laid off a
rift, and so that was coming down the pipe, and I had to make a decision. So,
I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I don’t want anybody to dictate my
future, you know. I want to be somebody who people look to to make decisions, not
decisions to be made for them, and to do it the right way, and that’s when I made
the decision to go to law school. You know, my mom had gone to law school and she
said, “go where they want you,” and she’s like, “I think you should go to Boston
College. They’re gonna take care of you when things are going well. They’re also
gonna take care of things aren’t going well because they want you to be successful.”
One thing about BC Law is that they have a vested interest everyone, even
down to perspective students. Like you walk around campus, people talk to you
and they care whether or not you’re getting your questions answered or
you’re not lost. Pretty much, you’re part of the family and I felt like I was
part of the family before I even got here. When I came to visit, I was at
prospective students weekend and I had conversations with people, and I already felt like I belong. You know, what’s happening at BC is I’ve found doors open for me, or
at least, I could see doors that I never knew existed before. There are just a lot
of different roles that you know, BC graduates, BC alumni are involved in, and frankly, I got the right foundation to go out and be the best
lawyer I can be. Who knows what that’s going to be, but that’s
my goal, to go out be the best lawyer I can be, and say you know what, I can make
an impact. Who knows what that impact will look like, but it needs to be
part of the fabric of everything I do. You know, after graduation, I’m going to
work for a large Boston-based law firm. However, there’s still you know, other
opportunities that, you know, a Boston College education will allow me to
pursue in the future if I so choose.
