Rewarding Experiences…
Leticia Tavares ’14
When Leticia Tavares ’14 became an American citizen
in 2012, it was the culmination of a journey that began
in childhood, when her mother left their native Brazil and
migrated to the U.S. alone to begin building a better life
for her family. “My mother’s sacrifices motivate me to
work hard and overcome every obstacle in my way.”
At RWU Law, Leticia is turning that motivation into
action, making the most of her legal education. She
is vice president of the Multi-Cultural Law Students
Association, a member of the Law Review and the
Moot Court Board, active in the Women’s Law and the
Tax & Business Law Societies – and a recent recipient of
the Law Alumni Association Scholarship.
Each year, the Law Alumni Association Scholarship is
awarded to exceptional first-year law students who
demonstrate both academic excellence and financial
need. The scholarship provides crucial funds to
deserving students and, as Leticia explains, has an
invaluable impact on their educational experience.
Being awarded the Law Alumni Association Scholarship
boosted my confidence and reassured me that hard
work really does lead to success.”
