Erica '13
Da Vinci Design
Future Public Interest Lawyer

'The Advocate'


Her dream:
Erica is passionate about equality, diversity and fair treatment to all. “I want to defend those who can’t defend themselves. My dream is to go to a good university, graduate at the top of my class, and become a public interest lawyer.”

Why Da Vinci? “I chose Da Vinci because I wanted a smaller school environment. I love how the teachers really care. Being at Da Vinci has been a great learning experience for me. I’ve learned that I am a very passionate person and that I care a lot more about the people close to me than I thought.”

What she’s passionate about: “I want to defend causes that I believe are being wronged in present day such as animal rights, gay rights, immigrant rights, children’s homeless prevention.”

Advice for new students: “Don’t be afraid to open up to older students and to the staff. The staff really does care.”

Campus activities: “I’m involved in peer tutors and I am a student ambassador.”

I’ve always wanted to . . . “visit Lebanon because that is where some of my ancestors were from. I would also like to travel through Europe for a year to places like Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and France.”
