It all started when I was 11 years old, from the time I was able to realize what college actually was. I had heard my mom talking about how she attended Middlesex County College as she was speaking with one of her friends.Thats when I was curious and asked her “why do we need to go to college mommy”.

Which is a lawyer specializing in the defense of people and companies charged with criminal conduct. I remember being asked by my uncle in a family party if I still wanted to be a lawyer and I explained myself this time and after a few disscussions he said “you
