Amber's Story

My passion is reading.

Reading became my passion when I was very little; I finished a book and got a new one. I was always able to get lost in the words. Now, my big dream is to become a Supreme Court Justice. I know that dream is a big shot, so my backup is to become a successful prosecution lawyer. I believe that lawyers are leaders who help restore justice in our community.

Attending UCLA Mock Trial Institute would help me gain experience in presenting myself to a judge and jury in a court room. This program will give me the ability to stand up for my beliefs and opinions.

A Note from Mr. Kabongo, Amber's Teacher

"Amber is a good candidate for the program because she is naturally inquisitive. She is also very bright, especially her level of emotional intelligence. UCLA Mock Trial Institute will offer her experiences that she will not be able to have otherwise. She will gain invaluable academic and life experience. Finally, she will be able to travel outside of her immediate community, which she has been longing for."

Excited for UCLA Mock Trial Program

I'm so excited to spend a week at the UCLA campus. The Mock Trial Program is an opportunity for me to explore my interest in law and to see if I could pursue a future in this field. This program also allows me to explore college and experience what it's like to be a college student. I'm so grateful for everyone that has helped me get to this program.

Success! Mr. Kabongo helped Amber raise $1,968
