I was absolutely thrilled to be chosen as a Woodruff Scholar! It has given me the opportunity to attend law school without having the constant thought of ‘How will I pay my loans back?’ Additionally, the experience I had when meeting other finalist and future classmates was a truly heartwarming experience that I will cherish forever.
