WINNERS OF THE TERRY BRYANT LAW SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP

2021 Winner

Our 2021 winner of the Terry Bryant Law School Scholarship is Fatema Jaffer (Orlando, FL), selected for her superb essay and an exceedingly impressive and diverse mix of academic achievements, public service, and athletic accomplishments. We are honored to help this phenomenal Florida State University graduate attend Harvard Law School in the fall.

Fatema’s essay illustrates her keen intellect and selfless nature as she describes how her journey to Kenya to train as an elite long distance runner exposed her to social and economic inequities—and inspired her to fight for children in marginalized communities. Fatima already has a clear vision of how she will use her knowledge as a lawyer and educator to create a new program in Kenya aimed at eradicating educational barriers through public policy work and legislative reform, and we are proud to help her embark on her ambitious journey.
