Camille Awono was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland. She attended the University of Miami prior to joining the Penn Carey Law Community. She graduated with two degrees in Sport Administration and French, minoring in Business Law and Political Economy.
At the University of Miami, Camille became passionate about student-athlete rights, their academic and professional support, and its relation to racial equity. She had the opportunity to intern with various sport organizations, including Soccer Shots and the United Soccer League, exploring market trends and customer relations. During her sophomore year, Camille studied abroad at Université Paris Nanterre in Paris, France. This experience solidified her plans to work internationally in the future.
After graduating from college in December 2021, Camille split her time working as a substitute teacher in Montgomery County, MD, and as a game day assistant with the University of Maryland’s Athletic Department. She thrives in front-facing positions and prioritizes building relationships, whether with her former students or future colleagues and clients.
Camille is eager to learn more about family law and international transactional work. She plans to become an active member of the Black Law Student Association, and the Entertainment and Sports Law Society. Camille is also excited to begin her position as an advocate with Penn Carey Law’s Custody and Support Assistance Clinic.
Camille is forever grateful for the opportunity to study at Penn Carey Law as a Dr. Sadie T.M. Alexander Scholar. She hopes to share Dr. Alexander’s many inspirational messages with her peers.
