Scholarship

Congratulations to Maira Gomez, the 2018 Ankin Law Office Academic Scholarship Winner.

Maira GomezI was born in Los Angeles, CA to Mexican parents. At the age of nine, my family and I moved to Tennessee and to Kentucky thereafter. As the fourth child of six children, I am the first to graduate high school. I’m also the first and only one to graduate from college and the only one to attend graduate school. I currently attend law school at the University of Kentucky.

I am very passionate about helping the less fortunate and am a proponent of social justice. When I conclude my legal studies, I would like to become an immigration attorney. I also plan to work with nonprofit organizations that help victims of domestic violence.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, especially my nieces and nephews. They rock my world! I also enjoy going hiking or when possible taking a vacation to the beach.
