Valentina Grizales

I am a first generation law student at St. Thomas University Benjamin L. Crump College of Law. Ever since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. My parents are both from Colombia and moved to the United States in their 20s. They always raised my siblings and I to love our culture, and most of my family still lives in Colombia. I am the oldest of three siblings – I have a younger brother and a younger sister, and I have two little dogs named Coco and Lala. My passions include the law, true crime documentaries, mock trial, working with kids, pickle-ball, reality tv, and much more!
