When I was a little girl I wanted to be a princess: beautiful, happy, and with the power to change the world. As I grew up I realized that in our world the people who have this kind of power are not princesses, rather they are lawyers, soldiers or politicians. . In fourth grade, after playing the prosecution lawyer in a mock trial event, I realized that I would be a lawyer. This great ambition, however, is something entirely foreign to my family; I will be the first in over 3 generation to obtain a college degree. This has driven me to never accept anything but the best, because I know that in order to attain my goal I must work harder than anyone before me. Through my life there have been 2 characteristics that define me: an unyielding sense of moral character, and a constant need for excellence. My family and everyone around me have invariably been supportive, but in the end it is riding on me. Due to this, I have used certain building blocks to hone my natural abilities, and craft the skills necessary to achieve my goals. I have an adept set of leadership skills, fierce desire for perfection, and an uncompromising ethical code.
