Law School Applications for Miriam who is working hard to complete her education

Posted Aug 21, 2019
From Miriam:"In regards to my health, it has stabilized. It's almost been three months since transplant & I am doing well. My energy has increased and I am no longer on dialysis. I'm using the free time I've gained to study for the law school admissions exam. I am also working at a law firm that helps people with chronic illnesses like myself. While in foster care, I was appointed attorneys who didn't protect the rights of my siblings and I. I know first hand what it is like to not be heard in a courtroom. I wish to attend law school to specialize in children rights law. I want to advocate for and represent current and former foster youth as well as hold others accountable for implementing those rights."

Miriam is 26 years old and lives in Berkely, CA

Miriam entered into foster care as a toddler with her nine siblings. During her time in care, she bounced around many placements, however, despite this, she worked incredibly hard and pursued her dreams of graduating college. Miriam attended and graduated from UC Berkeley, saying, "I've overcome many things in my life - I believe that obtaining my bachelors degree along with growing up around substance abuse was challenging". However, these hardships were met with perhaps the most difficult of all, her current battle against kidney disease and kidney failure. Despite it all, Miriam remains positive. During her free time, she volunteers at a foster youth nonprofit, reads novels, watches movies, and writes poetry.
