Karla Alvarado graduated from George Mason University in May 2020 with a degree in Criminology, and she is now a first-year student at the University of Maryland Carey Law School. A native of El Salvador, Karla faced enormous challenges from the time she was a child: finding a way to the United States with her family, overcoming harsh living conditions, navigating the language barrier, and balancing family obligations with her school work. Despite these obstacles, Karla achieved an excellent grade point average as an undergraduate. When it was time to apply to law school, she encountered another challenge: the Law School Admissions Test, a standardized exam that provides an advantage to students with financial resources. Karla overcame that barrier as well. Now she is on her way to becoming a lawyer.
