"While at Wayne Law, I was able to rejuvenate the Wayne State National Lawyers Guild Chapter, and through those connections, I was able to sit on both the Detroit/Michigan NLG Chapter's Board of Directors and on the National Executive Committee of the NLG, meeting an entire community of role models and mentors. The progressive law students that became my friends in law school continue to be my colleagues and peers in the struggle to this day."
