After some time at Penn Law, I can say with complete confidence that Penn Law truly understands what it means to embrace and celebrate diversity. I have found some of my closest friends and biggest base of support by being an active member of our Black Law Students Association. However, much like a large portion of the student body, several, not just one thing, make me unique. Penn Law is a special place because embracing one aspect of yourself does not mean that you have to relinquish another. I can find individuals all throughout the Law School community with whom I have something in common with and the likelihood that there is a student group specifically geared toward this commonality is almost certain. These shared interests range from cultural backgrounds, to career goals, to hobbies, and even to food. The best part about all of this is that every group is inclusive and tries to bring everyone together rather than divide us by our differences. My absolute favorite part about walking the halls of the Law School is that I can see friends I made through BLSA, American Constitution Society, or Penn Law Softball and engage with them about any other aspect of my life.
