My Arcadia Experience

You’re never just a number at Arcadia. My professors knew me, and they knew my goals. I never had a question, or a problem, or an idea that my professors weren’t willing and able to help me address.

Mentor Who Made an Impact

Judge Christopher Cerski (adjunct professor of Historical and Political Studies) mentored me through most of my time at Arcadia. Without his guidance, I probably would not have been ready for law school. The first step I took toward having my career occurred when Judge Cerski told me to send a handwritten note, rather than an email, to a panel speaker I had enjoyed. I would have never known that on my own.

In Five Years...

I will be continuing my advocacy work on behalf of victims in Philadelphia.
