JD immigration and Family Law School, Russian

At only 26 years old, I am a young woman who witnessed terrible violence and social turmoil growing up in my native Russia. Now, having permanently immigrated to the USA and living in Utah for the past two years, I now want very much to study law and to become an attorney. I hope to attend your Law program because Salt Lake City is my home, and I am very comfortable here and have the support of my family.

As an immigrant to America, a nation of immigrants, I am very knowledgeable about the immigration process, and I would like to use this knowledge to help simplify the process for others, helping others to achieve the complex won security that I have now earned through a lot of hard work. I believe that America's diversity is her greatest strength, and I see great beauty in that diversity; for this reason, I would like to contribute to diversity in America as an attorney specializing in immigration law. My long-term goal is to become an attorney with my own practice and become heavily involved in pro-bono services. While in school, I would like to volunteer for service at the civil clinic to fill some of the small amounts of time left over after my studies. English has been a tremendous challenge for me since I am a native speaker of Russian, but now that I have achieved a TOEFL score of 104, I have the necessary confidence in my abilities and feel strongly that I could succeed in your program.

In Russia, before immigrating to the US, I worked as a Buyer and Head Manager of a Sales Department for five years, supervising six salespeople. Before that, I worked full time and also attended school full time, simultaneously. I have learned how to budget my time well, and I have tremendous energy and dedication to my studies. A foreigner who is now a Utah resident, my determination is helping me to realize a great deal of upward mobility since I grew up in a poor neighborhood and, in at least three generations of my family on both my mother's and father's side, I am the first one to attend college. Thus, I feel that I am an immigrant who has established her determination and high level of motivation for studying for the JD Degree and later building a successful career in immigration law.

I am absorbed in studying the issue of the separation of families and working to keep them together. This goal fulfills me spiritually and socially, and I look forward to helping hundreds if not thousands of families in the future to overcome immigration and migration barriers and to stay together, living together, as families. I thank you for consideration of my application to your distinguished program.
