In high school, I was convinced I was going to be in theatre. It was all I wanted to do. I started UCF as a technical theatre major. However, due to life circumstances, I realized I wanted something that would be more stable. I had no idea what that something was, I just knew I did not want to wait tables for the rest of my life.
I decided that I would take a semester of various classes from different fields to see what I was interested in. I took a literature class, an abnormal psychology class, a criminal justice class, and a basics in legal studies class. You can guess which one was my favorite.
I ended up majoring in legal studies and was convinced I was going to be a paralegal. I graduated from UCF in 2008 with my legal studies degree. Unfortunately, obtaining a job at that time was extremely difficult. I took a year off and worked at my restaurant job and decided I would try to go to law school. At this point, I was married and had a two-year-old daughter. Thankfully, I did well on my LSAT and I was offered a scholarship to attend Barry University School of Law.
