Let me start by saying that when I received this chance to participate and interact with another lawyer, I was elated. On January 17, 2011, I had the honor of meeting Mayowa Odusanya, a Family Law Attorney in Miami, Florida.
When I arrived at Mr. Odusanya’s office, he decided that instead of starting the day in his office, we should get to know a little bit about each other. We headed out to a cafe near his office where many questions were exchanged; varying from what my motivation in high school is to whether he believes that it is all worth it at the end.
After our discussion ended, we took a drive to an actual law school: Florida International University College of Law. Because I had never seen one before, I could not stop smiling. While in the building, Mr. Odusanya told me about everything he had to do in order to accomplish his goals in law school. He also gave me a personal tour of the different auditorium and courtrooms. I also had the pleasure of meeting a good friend of Mr. Odusanya who told me about the different programs their law school had to offer.
It may not seem like much, but the experience and the exposure were invaluable to my continued interest in pursuing a career as a lawyer and a judge one day. Time flew by and before I knew it I had to go home. I had a great day with Mr. Odusanya and cannot wait to do it again. Thank you, Dina and Spencer, for the great opportunity, the exposure and experience I am getting from the Lawyers to the Rescue Mentor Program.
