My name is Krishtine Loaiza, I am a Colombian-Panamanian woman. Here’s a little background on me: I came to the United States at the age of seven, and have been living in Miami ever since. Both of my parents are Colombian, i was born in Panama City, Panama, but lived in Colombia for some of my youth. I travel frequently to both countries, I love to go back to my roots and visit family.
Personally, I love to read and learn languages! Those are my two favorite pastimes. The classes that interest me most as a 1L are Torts and Civil Procedure! I am a member of the Hispanic Law Student Association, Miami Law Women, First Generation Law Association, and Miami Law HOPE.
On the legal side, I aim to become a criminal defense attorney. I have wanted to go into public interest for as long as i can remember. Ultimately, I would like to go into politics or take up international law
