Elise's Washington Program Experience

“I was sitting 100 feet away from my idol, Justice Sonia Sotomayor and getting to see everything. The Supreme Court, like the actual members of the court and oral argument, is so closed off to everyone. It felt so special and once-in-a-lifetime. That’s the room Roe v. Wade was decided in and Obergefell v. Hodges, all of these historical cases were argued in that room -- just being there and feeling all of that history was amazing.”
