Featured Lawtina: Silvia Chairez-Perez

"My name is Silvia Chairez-Perez and I was born in Zacatecas, Mexico. I am currently the Student Bar Association President at Golden Gate University School of Law.
I grew up on the east side of San Jose California. As an immigrant and Latina, I faces so many challenges in Undergrad. Ranging from financial challenges to struggling with anxiety and trying to balance my mental health. As a first-generation student applying to law school felt like finding my way through a maze. The first time I took the LSAT I completely BOMBED it. My score was so bad NO school would take me. The important thing to keep reminding yourself when applying is to never give up. I am currently studying to get my Juris Doctor and a Master of Business. In the future, I plan on becoming a criminal defense attorney and maybe someday opening my own makeup or skincare line."
