Let us get to know you! Introduce yourself.

Why did you start BLIS? What do you hope to help our members with as the president?

"I founded BLIS to allow all UCLA students to have the opportunity to thrive and excel in a pre-law and finance organization. I hope all members can take advantage of BLIS resources, which include guest speaker events with individuals from top law and financial firms as well as investment and business law workshops. I know by working together, we can create a robust community of UCLA students interested in law and finance."
