I am currently a 1L at the University of Colorado Law School, and will be transferring to UMKC Law in the fall. This summer I will be working as a legal intern with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Kansas City.
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and received my undergraduate degree from Drury University in Springfield, MO. Before graduating I enlisted in the Navy where I spent 6 years working as an Arabic Language Analyst. During my time in the Navy I studied Arabic at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, where I obtained an Associate degree in Iraqi Arabic. After DLI I was stationed with the National Security Agency in Augusta, Georgia.
I finished my undergraduate degree while I was on active duty, often while working 50-60 hour weeks. I also studied for the LSAT exam during this time period. I understand the importance of studying effectively because everyone has responsibilities beyond test prep. I also know from experience that standardized test scores can improve significantly with the right approach.
