During her 1L year, Anaheed joined the Columbia Journal of Race and Law (CJRL) as a 1L Staff Editor and earned herself a 1L Representative position on First Generation Professionals (FGP).

Kayla Mathurin

I am Kayla Mathurin. I was born in Okinawa, Japan but I grew up in Tacoma, Washington. I am currently a Senior majoring in International Political Economy at Pitzer College. On campus, I work in the Office of the Dean of Faculty as a Student Assistant and in the Office of Student Success Initiatives as an Affinity Fellow. In addition to being a member of the Black Student Union and First-generation affinity groups, I am also a co-founder and president of the Law Society.

I will be attending Columbia Law School in the fall. There, I hope to apply to the dual degree program with Pantheon-Sorbonne-Paris 1, obtaining both my J.D. and M1, allowing me to practice law in both America and France. Although I do not have a set area of law I want to practice yet, I have grown a fond interest in both International/Comparative Law and Corporate, Business, and Transactional Law.

Daniel Youssef

Daniel is a sophomore at Northeastern University, majoring in psychology and business administration. As an aspiring human resources management professional, he is working on building a strong interdisciplinary foundation in management. He has gained experience in recruitment, onboarding, and employee relations. He enjoys reading and music, and was a member of the Handel and Haydn Society. He lives in Westborough, MA, with his parents and brother.
