After three years of law school, three months of bar study, and four months of awaiting bar results, I was eager to start practicing. I took what I perceived to be the best opportunity presented to me and hit the ground running. As many first year associates do, I quickly discovered that corporate defense and collection litigation was not for me and was significantly affecting my happiness outside of the office. After one year it was back to the drawing board. I was scared, unsure, confused, stressed, worried, and regretting my choice to attend law school. This all changed when I volunteered for the San Diego based nonprofit, Invisible Children, and my worldview shifted. Dramatically.
