One fun fact about yourself: I get a lot of my motivation from watching the sport of boxing. In my spare time, I write a lot of poetry. I perform spoken word poetry at open mic events and churches.

Why did you choose UB School of Law?  UB School of Law is one of the few schools that give foreign-trained attorneys credit for their experience. A UB Alumnus who has the same legal background told me about how the two – year J.D. equipped him for the American legal practice.  

One piece of advice for accepted students: UB School of Law accepted you because you were considered competent. Do not put yourself under undue pressure. You will excel in Law school as long as you do all that your instructors require.
