Future Plans
In an ever-changing world, we must continue to adapt our system of governance.  This is the reason I want to attend law school and become an attorney in criminal law.  By becoming a lawyer I hope to be more involved in the dialogue deciding the rules we abide by as citizens and help make a positive impact in my community. As Gandhi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
