“The most fulfilling aspect of participating in BLSA is being able to advocate for the Black community at Columbia across several spheres, whether that be academically, socially, professionally, or health wise. Being able to be part of such an impactful organization for the Black students at Columbia is definitely amongst the highlights of my law school journey.”
