"If I have a little girl I want her to be ambitious, to be aggressive in her pursuits, to be unapologetically herself but I want her to be judicious with how she interacts with the outside world emotionally. I would be remiss, if I as a male could feel like I could impart emotional lessons, [but maybe] I can give tips. I don’t know what it’s like to be a woman [in our society], but I know if and when I have my baby girls… I’m going to treat them like queens."

"I met a few people in law school whose desire to do good things in the world and sense of responsibility for other people really inspires me. I’m grateful for them. Meeting people like that helps me put my situation in perspective and [reflect on] what my challenges are and what I want to do with my opportunities."

“I started a small business—[Plugg]—recently and it really took off…We’re making money and I’m able to help my Mom out. [My proudest moment is] when I realized that this thing that I was starting up wasn’t going to fail. It’s a social media influencer marketing firm…We aggregate hundreds of thousands of social media [influencers] to increase brand engagement, generate traffic & increase sales. Lawyers always react, they don’t act. I wanted to act & [that’s part of what inspired me to start it]."
