I graduated from Washington College a semester early with a double major in Philosophy and International Studies. Though I always planned on going directly to law school, my eyes were opened after my study abroad experience and I knew that I wanted to continue working a bit more before I started school again.
I have always had a passion for international current events and human rights, and am so grateful that I am working in a field that deals with those issues. While at Washington College I was a member of AOII, Omicron Delta Kappa, Order of Omega and Phi Sigma Tau. I was also the President of the Philosophy Club, Washington College Democrats, and student editor of our Philosophy Journal, Apeiron. In my spare time I love to work out and enjoy the outdoors.
My goal is not to live forever, but to create something that will.

A part of the Hansard Scholar’s Program I was given an outstanding opportunity to learn at the heart of the British political system. During the Fall of 2009, I studied at London School of Economics and assisted British MP of Crosby, Claire Curtis-Thomas as a Research Intern. This experience was phenomenal, and I will never forget walking the halls of the House of Commons and Lords and sitting in on weekly Prime Minister’s Questions. My projects included acting as head researcher and organizer of the `Top Shelf’ campaign and assistant to the `Sierra Leone Book Campaign.’ My responsibilities included formal reports, an official survey, press releases, meetings with Ministers, the Metropolitan Police Authority, and other MPs.
Q & A
Future plans? I graduated from Washington College a semester early, though I plan to walk with the Class of 2010 in May, and am currently working as a paralegal at Maggio + Kattar, L.C. in Washington, D.C. The firm is an immigration law firm representing individual foreign nationals and a select group of Fortune 500 and other companies as well as non-profits, universities and diverse institutions across the nation and around the world. The work I do includes drafting letters and correspondence to current clients, corporations, and the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services, and tracking, organizing and researching on current pending cases. I am currently studying for the LSATs which I will take in June and October, and plan to enter law school in the Fall of 2011 to study international and immigration law.
