How did CIVICUS help you on your professional path?

During my time with CIVICUS I learned the importance of being civically engaged and providing service to others. Those principles directly tie into my responsibilities as an attorney. I better understand the importance of providing pro bono services to the community and helping those who may not be able to afford legal representation. I have incorporated these principles into my professional life by being engaged in bar organizationas that allow me to connect, network, and be civically involved in communities in which I work.

What would you tell others about CIVICUS?

As a first generation college student, it was important to me that CIVICUS created a small community of people that I could call a family during my time at Maryland. I owe a lagre amount of my success at University of Maryland and in my professional career to what I learened during the time I was a part of the CIVICUS program -- not only in the classroom but also in the halls of Somerset and on our many service trips.
