About: I hope to pay off my loans
while I'm still young at heart, I am Yelp Elite but not that life elite, and I am very good at binge-watching television. My career goals include being a (relatively) successful, licensed attorney and continuing to work with/for people I respect. Long-term, I see myself staying at a firm but remain interested in seeing what happens.
Hometown: Just a small town girl
Undergrad: Wellesley College
About: I was born in Wuhan, China and adopted when I was less than three months old. I have lived in the US ever since and so don't speak any Chinese (although I did try to learn). I am interested in environmental law, both regulatory and litigation, but have not decided on whether I'm interested in private or public sector work.
Hometown: Daegu, South Korea
Undergrad: Amherst College
About: I am interested in practicing international trade, sanctions, and dispute resolutions. Prior to attending law school, I served in the ROK Army as an intelligence agent, stationed on the front line in the Demilitarized Zone and frequently deployed in various places as part of the US-ROK Combined Forces Command. I played the violin for more than 16 years and joined the Amherst College Symphony Orchestra throughout college. I also have a black belt in Taekwondo.
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Undergrad: Barnard College/Columbia University
About: I write with my right hand, but I do everything else with my left hand. My parents forced me to switch when I first started to learn how to write because they thought being conforming would be more convenient. I was born and raised in Houston, but I speak Vietnamese fluently because my family could not speak English growing up. I am the first in my family to go to college and law school, so I'm always looking for new ways to increase the pipeline for first generation students.

Hometown: Eindhoven, the Netherlands
Undergrad: Tilburg University
About: I was born in the Netherlands and lived there for 21 years. As a proper Dutchman, I cycle everywhere, leading me to risk my life every day on the streets of D.C. as crazy car drivers insist on cutting me off as often as possible. Also, I may or may not have a thorough knowledge of Korean pop groups.
Hometown: Seattle, Washington
Undergrad: Wesleyan University, 2014
About: I am currently interested in criminal law. I have seen every episode of Friends at least five times, and I would be content living the rest of my life eating nothing but red curry, pastrami, and gummies.
