What Inspired you to attend law school?
MM: I was initially inspired to attend law school because of my interest in advocacy. Through my many experiences as an advocate through collegiate sports, student involvement opportunities, and serving as a foster care advocate I have witnessed first-hand how important advocacy is in the lives of minorities.
What are your hobbies outside of work and school?
MM: Outside of law school I spend my time enjoying the outdoors, trying new foods, and working as a model.
Why did you choose to attend Colorado Law?
MM: I chose Colorado Law because of the institution's prestigious legal education, the amazing views in Boulder, and the incredible professors, staff members, and legal community I had the privilege of meeting during my visit to Colorado Law.
What are you most looking forward to this upcoming academic year?
MM: I am looking forward to making great connections with my peers, expanding my legal knowledge, and attending CU athletic events.
