“My time in Uganda has shifted the entire trajectory of my personal and professional life toward insuring access for women and/or minority groups to natural resources and unbiased, yet culturally relevant, legal aid, a passion distilled from the diversity of my research and the incredible need for such interventions that I witnessed in the region.”
