1L Receives $1,500 to Support Her Academic Ambitions in the 2022/2023 Academic Year
JERICHO, NY, November 10, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2022 Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. $1,500 Academic Scholarship is Gabrielle Catherine Stenholm. Currently a 1L at the University of Colorado Law, Gabrielle’s essay on her work with incarcerated teenagers compelled and inspired our team to support her academic pursuits.
Gabrielle’s essay discusses the complex nature of her work with the Gang Reduction Initiative of Denver. She leads into the essay with a poignant contrast between the nature of the young people she assists – playful and teasing – with the brushes with the law they’ve had even before the age of thirteen.
Gabrielle elaborates on the economic and social circumstances that have led the people she works with into their current conditions. She goes on to discuss how important the lives of the teenagers she works with are to her, as each teenager has the opportunity to flourish when provided with the proper resources.
Her essay also touches on her own experiences with financial and physical violence in Colorado. Gabrielle’s grandmother endured financial instability for most of her life, and a friend lost his life to gun violence.
It’s these experiences, partnered with Gabrielle’s interactions with teens through the Gang Reduction Initiative of Denver, that have driven her to pursue a career in law. She reached out to Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. to request financial assistance as she pursues her goal of helping children and their families address the wrongs done to them by today’s economic system.
Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. could not be more thrilled to offer Gabrielle $1,500 in financial support for the 2022/2023 academic year. The firm looks forward to seeing how Gabrielle continues to pursue her legal education and puts the passion exhibited in her essay to good use.
