My name is Grecia Perez, and I am a first-year law student at the University of Kansas. I am originally from Boston, Mass., but have spent the past 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 initial 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 individuals helpful, they were also great people. I felt like I could reach out to them and ask questions that at the time didn’t feel appropriate to ask administrators. They quickly became, and quite frankly are, some of my best friends at the University of Kansas. Over the course of Admitted Students Weekend, I was able to meet people who have not only changed my life, but assisted me in making the best decision I could have made in regards to law school.

I am confident that 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. With this in mind, I pursued and successfully became a champion for the school and, in turn, hope to be a resource, a sounding board, and hopefully a friend to a person in need of these things when visiting and, hopefully, choosing KU Law.
