West Palm Beach, Florida
B.S. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University,
While at FAMU Law Gloria achieved the Dean’s List, received the Book Award in her Evidence course, and participated as a FAMU Ambassador for the Office of Admissions. A December 2015 graduate, she passed the 2016 Florida Bar Exam in February, and currently works as an Associate Attorney at Kelley Kronenberg in West Palm Beach. She spent her secondary years at William T. Dwyer High School, also in West Palm Beach.
Why Gloria chose to attend the FAMU College of Law:
Prior to attending FAMU College of Law I was a FAMU Alumnus. During undergraduate school I experienced first-hand the love and excellence with care from FAMU professors and administration. I was certain that my attendance at the College of Law would be an extension of the wonderful experience and superior education that I had previously received at the main campus. Furthermore, I believed in my ability to excel as a student and I desired to credit FAMU College of Law for my success.
What sparked Gloria’s interest in the law:
At or around six-years-old I became infatuated with popular television shows (Law & Order and Matlock) and thereafter I began to profess that I would be an attorney. As I grew older, I became involved in the local youth court, volunteering as a student prosecutor and defense attorney, and I enjoyed playing a role as an advocate for justice on behalf of my peers. Throughout my childhood, on numerous occasions, I recognized the importance and influence of lawyers and I yearned to make a difference in my community and state through legal service.
Advice Gloria has for incoming FAMU Law students:
Hone your current style and skills. Do not shred the things that has contributed to your success prior to attending law school. Be receptive to critique and build solid relationships with your classmates and members of the legal community.
Something additional from Gloria:
I love FAMU!
