Open quoteOne of the moments that really influenced me was when my granddad was still around. He told me how important it is to really find a way to make some kind of a difference. When I saw the things that he did in his life, I thought, ‘You know, I think it would be fun to go into law.’ I really wanted to do well and make a difference.End quote
