On His Future and Purpose: It is nothing short of a privilege to be a part of this incredible program. I aspire to keep values of community, justice, and opportunity at the forefront of all of the work that I pursue, whether it be in the field of Law or Public Service. LFNC provides me and my fellow peers, the opportunity to realize intentional, local, and potentially transformative government work, so that we might be better educated and equipped to make an impact.
