"I am incredibly humbled and grateful to have been selected alongside such talented peers to be a recipient of OCWLA's 2016 Bar Stipend Award. I look forward to continue engaging in scholarship and service that advance the association's tremendously important work of promoting both women in the legal field and women's issues more broadly, as well as standing beside all those who have faced societal or legal discrimination. This recognition marks the start, not the conclusion, of my career dedicated to these aims."

"I am honored to be one of the recipients of the 2016 Bar Stipend Award. As a full time student, I strived to do my best in order to understand the law and achieve a scholarship. Even after such achievements the bar exam was another financial obstacle my family and I were forced to face. With this award, I was able to focus on studying and, hopefully, passing the exam without the anxiety of the additional expenses. In the future I hope to inspire other women in the field to continue to work hard, because it will not go unnoticed."
