Jewel is currently a student at Yale Law School in Connecticut.
The Dominguez Firm is grateful to everyone that applied for the Legal Scholarship. We commend your decision to become lawyers and help others. The many worthy submissions made this spring’s choice difficult. Quite a few of you shared personal experiences that fueled your decision to pursue careers in law. Others mentioned injustices that need addressing. Whatever the inspiration, we applaud you for working to improve society as a whole.
Our Legal Scholar for this spring, Jewel Drigo was born in the island nation of Dominica. Seeing her father’s entrepreneurial ventures stifled by poor legal guidance fueled her desire to become an attorney from a young age. When she was twelve, she and her family moved to the United States in pursuit of the American dream. After an internship at an immigration law firm in Michigan, she worked at a firm in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her experience there strengthened her resolve to help those in need of legal assistance not just in Dominica, but throughout the region.
Today, Jewel is a student at Yale Law School and is working hard towards that dream, “I am so grateful to The Dominguez Firm for this scholarship. Reflecting on my experiences this past semester, I am humbled to be the first person in my family to attend law school,” she continued, “This scholarship means I can continue one step closer to achieving my academic goals without being concerned about rising debt and financial challenges.”
