We’re committed to striking the right chord for people who are working with us; after all, we bear great responsibility in this line of work, and we like to have fun along the journey. We know that you will like Vanesa!
Vanesa is very smart and also sweet, and she speaks Spanish. She recently graduated from William and Mary with a degree in political science (two poli-sci degrees now in the house) and she minored in Chinese. She was born in California but considers herself from Maryland because she has been here since the age of two.
I had a few questions lined up for Vanesa.
Why did you choose William and Mary?
I went to community college and started applying to four-year schools. It ended up being between GWU and William & Mary, and I wanted to go somewhere outside of the comfort zone but not too far away. A few alumni I admired went to William & Mary, which tipped the balance in their favor.
How and why did you choose your major?
In my second year of college I had a crisis to trying to decide what wanted to do. I was trying a few different things: engineering, optometry, and tried out a few political science classes as well. I loved those political science classes and was doing well. So, when I transferred to William and Mary, I majored in political science and minored in Chinese.
What are some of your hobbies?
Nail art, anything Harry Potter, and stand-up comedy.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
The Great Wall of China
What made you want to work at a law firm?
I plan on going to law school one day, and I wanted to take a break between undergrad and law school and also to get some experience.
What is something interesting about you that doesn’t come up in normal, everyday conversation
Like a fun fact?
Yes exactly! Like a fun fact.
Do you have any pets?
Yes! A chihuahua named Mindi.
