Happy New Year


Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, once wisely stated, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.”

To me this means: aspire for more; set goals; dream big. At the same time, stay grounded; be present;  have gratitude for the journey.

Each new year brings new resolutions. Maybe this year it is a commitment towards the betterment of yourself. Perhaps it is the achievement of a goal that you are after. Whatever it is—work hard, appreciate the journey, and make sure to center yourself on the unique being that is you.

It’s a new year with 365 blank pages to fill. May your journey through 2018 be an amazing one!

On Gratitude

It’s November! Living in the Northeast, my mind conjures up images of the vibrant colors of the changing autumn leaves, the feel of the crisp air, warmer coats, Thanksgiving, and of course, all the wonderful things for which to give thanks and gratitude.

Jim Rohn, a former author and motivational speaker once said, “Learn to be thankful for what you already have, while you pursue all that you want.” This quote resonates with me.

As The High Bar launches its brand-new website with an aim to bring high quality, personalized tutoring for the bar examination to a broader range of students—I am thankful.

To the community of students who have already allowed me to be a part of their bar preparation journeyI am thankful.

To you, my readerI am thankful. The High Bar’s blog is written with a focus centered on you, so if there are any topics you would like to see discussed or if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Lastly, I ask: What can you be thankful for as you pursue your dreams? Let’s start a conversation!
