I grew up in a super small town called Weirsdale, Florida. It's so small, my Mom and Dad drove me 45 minutes to another small town called Ocala just for school. I always excelled academically. Everyone would always say they expected me to do great things, and I knew I wanted to achieve great things, but I had no idea how to even do that. In my room in Weirsdale, FL, I would dream and dream. I ended up being the first in my family to graduate from college and to go on to law school. My motto throughout law school was to just put my all into everything. I rather have failed knowing that I did everything in my power than failed knowing I could have done more. Using that approach, law school ended up working out well lol. I started at a T50 and was able to transfer to a T25. I graduated with honors, and passed the July administration of the NY Bar. I landed a job practicing real estate law at a prominent real estate firm in NY, and I started a legal blog, @pointsoflaw. I have achieved, maybe not incredibly great things, but the things I dreamed about as a little girl in my room in Weirsdale, FL. From experience I can say, no dream is too big, once you set your eyes on it and work your ass off for it.

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great today! My to do list is humongous today 😩 Despite that I had a pretty good day! I got up early to work on an assignment, went to class, went to the gym, made a planning, cooked dinner and now it’s finally time to STUDY 👩🏽💻 What are your plans for this evening? Studying/working or relaxing?
¿Concuerdas con el testimonio?
Para Guy Ryder, director general de la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT), no hay huelga que se justifique, si afecta los servicios esenciales de la población.
Para él, solo hay progreso social mediante mesas de concertación entre el Gobierno, el sindicalismo y los patronos. Así lo reconoce, el máximo líder de la OIT, quien durante 30 años estuvo en la arena del sindicalismo. ¿Qué elementos se necesitan para que una negociación tripartita (Gobierno, sindicatos y patronos) sea exitosa?
Lo primero es la confianza. Si no hay confianza entre las partes, es difícil que se avance en diálogo social. Hay que trabajar en respetar los compromisos acordados, tener la confianza de que la persona frente a usted tiene la capacidad representativa para concluir un acuerdo que tenga valor. Es un asunto subjetivo, pero necesario. -

Hey First-Generation ⚖️Legal ⚖️ Eagles!⠀
📚One of the hardest lessons I learned as a First-Generation Law School Aspirant is that you either learn lessons through Mentors or Mistakes.📚⠀
✨And I guarantee you, you probably want to learn via your Mentor.✨⠀
📕Lord knows I made plenty of mistakes along my law school journey: ⠀
✨1. Should’ve had a wider application net; ⠀
✨2. Should’ve had a more targeted application strategy; ⠀
✨3. Should’ve had an attorney read my personal statements, diversity statements, and addendum.⠀
📕In the end did it all work out? 👌🏾Yes, but I could have SAVED myself some bumps in the road if I had a MENTOR to teach me those lessons.📚⠀
📕One thing for sure, YOU GONNA LEARN, it’s just a matter of whether you get that lesson from your mentor or your mistakes....⠀
📕If you would rather save your mistakes and rely upon a mentor to help you along your law school journey, schedule a complimentary consult call. ✨Link in bio!✨
And this is why the #republicans messed up with #donaldtrump because if you were gonna have such a vile #potus you could NOT have #melaniatrump follow up the grace, class, and story of #michelleobama (and also copy her speeches verbatim)... ladies and gentlemen this is the same woman who was a better #lawstudent and #lawfirm employee than her accomplished husband but CHOSE to be #flotus and then made that role matter inna way it never has with her health initiatives and programs because she was tired of people dying from largely preventable diseases, while also making sure #women especially #womenofcolor saw a dynamic woman getting shit done in D.C. ... we ain't forgetting her no matter how hard you try to erase him #republicans ... #happybirthday#michelleobama ... the greatest thing/being to ever come outta #chiraq and the best thing/being to ever grace the #whitehouse ... remember two generations prior they'd have made her come through the back of that building and she likely is working in the kitchen or cleaning rooms ... she ain just make #blackhistory SHE IS #blackhistory which why #beyonce looks up to her in the same way #barackobama did (she was his best advisor he freely admits) ... polls show if you put every eligible and viable person in the U.S. in the #2020election ... #michelleobama would win ... the only problem is she awready helped do that job for 8 years and ought to be able to retire in her last role #queen of the #unitedstates#isaidwhatisaid
Boa noite, pessoal. Ando um pouco sumida, mas, hoje, venho falar a respeito de algo, de extrema importância, que gera, na maioria das vezes, dúvidas e até mesmo desistência nas pessoas, pelo simples fato de não sabermos realizar tal ato.Trata-se da organização/planejamento nos estudos. Como todos nós sabemos, na maioria das vezes, não temos a rotina que desejamos: com tempo para estudar, trabalhar, estar com a família/amigos, realizar os demais afazeres e ter um pouco de lazer. Desse modo, quando iniciamos os estudos acreditamos que não iremos dar conta de estudarmos tantas matérias e assuntos. Muitas pessoas trabalham e precisam flexibilizar seu tempo, outras são casadas, possuem filhos ou, até mesmo, precisam dar um cuidado maior aos seus pais. Precisamos entender que tudo isso é normal e que também é normal se nos cansarmos, no entanto não é normal não termos planejamento perante nossos afazeres. Todos nós possuímos uma vida paralela aos nossos estudos e nesta vida de concursos/estudos o grande segredo é ponderar tudo isto. Na imagem acima, apresento-lhes o meu cronograma semanal, onde exeteriorizo as matérias que preciso estudar ao longo da semana e, de maneira manual mesmo, marco as matérias já estudadas. Dessa forma, tenho um certo controle sobre a meta que preciso atingir e onde estou conseguindo chegar.Tenho isso como uma forma de me incentivar, todos os dias, e de organizar o meu tempo livre com as obrigações que, no caso, são os meus estudos. Devemos lembrar, sempre, que para chegar ao nosso destino almejado, precisamos de rota, assim são também os nossos sonhos, que precisam de planejamento e estratégia para serem alcançados. ⠀
At eighteen-months old, I was diagnosed with a bilateral sensory-neural hearing loss. Growing up as a child with a disability, I am no stranger to the many hardships and challenges a disadvantaged individual may face. In school, as a young hearing-impaired student I often relied on other people to advocate for me. As time went on, I learned to take on the role of advocate for myself and became my own voice. I have since successfully learned how to face and overcome the challenges a disadvantaged person faces, and grew into a strong advocate. I am a graduate of The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, where I was a member of the Hofstra Trial Advocacy Association and competed in seven interscholastic trial advocacy competitions across the country and was the recipient of the David Diamond Memorial Scholarship for my commitment to trial advocacy and public service. I was also a staff editor on the Family Court Review, and had my Note published in 2017. At the age of twenty-five I was admitted to practice before all Courts of the State of New York and the United States District Courts of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York State. I am now an Associate at the Law Offices of Alan J. Schwartz, P.C. (@ajslaw), where I advocate for and am the voice for those accused of crimes ranging from low level violations and misdemeanors to violent felony offenses.
