“Henry David Thoreau said, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." If sixteen-year-old Mari could meet me today, she would be ecstatic, surprised, and extremely proud of where I am. The last three years have been slightly grueling, and I still have a way to go, but none of it would have been possible without the love, care, and kindness provided to me by my grandparents. Their one wish for me was to graduate law school and shortly, I will be doing just that. Above all, I am thankful for everyone who has helped me along this slightly miserable but zesty journey, and I hope I continue to fulfill all my dreams for the rest of my life. From now on call me Tom Cruise, because I am about to finish the impossible. CONGRATULATIONS 3L's!!!”
