    "I wanted to be a fellow because I wanted to provide a safe space for incoming law students and help make law school a less scary place. It can be a really hard adjustment and having a strong support system is so important. It's really rewarding to contribute to creating that space for students."

    "Being a Resident Advisor in undergrad was one of my favorite jobs I've ever had and I think being a Fellow is the law school equivalent of being an RA. Fellows get to build relationships and community with their group and also share all of the resources that Willamette has to offer."

    "I saw similarities between this position and the Resident Advisor position I had in undergrad. I enjoy offering people advice for transitional periods that I have already gone through. Seeing people excel and overcome challenges brings me a lot of satisfaction."

    "I became a Fellow because I believe that I can be a great mentor to the variety of individuals draw to this profession. During the inevitable moments of double in the first year, I hope to provide support by being there for my group: by listening, by imparting lessons I've learned, and by relating experiences all 1Ls go through. Ultimately, it's my genuine hope that I can make a positive impact on another's time here."
