Even though I grew up in Chicago, I have been in South Florida since 1994. I now consider South Florida my home and my community; one that is very diverse and is in need of assistance from all civic organizations. We as the legal community, especially, must work together to enhance our entire community.
As Lebron James said, I am taking my talents to GSCBWLA – My primary goal this year as President is to increase ACTIVE membership in our organization, thereby continuing to increase the power that is GSCBWLA. WHY am I using my talents and efforts here and why should you be an active member in GSCBWLA? We are a force of strong women (and some men) to be reckoned with!!! We assist our members, law students and the community, through mentorship programs, CLEs, judicial forums, general membership meetings and community outreach.
But so much more than that—we are a family that supports, uplifts, promotes, guides and helps each other maintain peace, yet we fight against injustice for the advancement of Black females in the legal community. GSCBWLA is dedicated to uplifting its members and the community.
I am so thankful for the privilege to serve as your President and thank you in advance for your support of GSCBWLA and our 2012-2013 Executive Board. I look forward to working with you to continue the legacy of service that is GSCBWLA.
