My name is Grecia Perez, and I am a third-year law student at the University of Kansas. I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts, but before moving to Kansas had spent 11 years in California, where I received a degree in sociology and Spanish literature from Occidental College in Los Angeles. I worked in commercial real estate in the San Francisco/Bay Area upon graduating.
My interest in becoming a student ambassador stemmed from my first encounter with the organization during my visit to KU Law in April 2013. Not only were these people helpful, they were also great people. I felt like I could reach out to them and ask questions that didn’t feel appropriate to ask administrators. They quickly became, and quite frankly are, some of my best friends at KU. During Admitted Students Weekend, I was able to meet people who assisted me in making the best decision I could have made about law school.
I am confident that both the administration, as well as the people I’ve gotten close to, are here to champion my success. This could not have been achieved without the help of my student ambassadors. In my role as an ambassador, I aim to be a resource, sounding board, and hopefully a friend to people in need of guidance in the law school selection process.
Currently I am the president of the Student Bar Association and have spent the summer as an intern in the District Attorney’s Office in Kansas City, where I will continue to work during the fall semester. I credit my internship for solidifying my desire to become a prosecutor.
