Amy Hernandez

I AM SEIZING EVERY OPPORTUNITY. While I am a quadruple major in justice studies, sociology, Spanish and women’s studies, I am also a proud member the nation’s first Latina Sorority, Lambda Theta Alpha. I am pretty busy, but I love it. And that’s what I love about the University of Idaho. There are so many ways to get involved, and so many different things to do as student and as a global citizen. I have a lot of interests and passions, and I’m planning on putting them all together in a career after law school. As a kid from a small town in Idaho, the University has opened my eyes to a world of possibility. Now, I’m the one living my dream.


What do you plan to do when you graduate?
More school! After I graduate, I’m planning on continuing into law school.

How is the University of Idaho helping you to achieve your goals?
Not only do I feel like my professors and the staff at the University of Idaho are amazing in their expertise, but I also feel like just being here has taught me to accept change and appreciate everything in life. I’m growing as a person and gaining the wisdom and courage to go anywhere in life. The University of Idaho has given me lifelong friends, career opportunities and many, many amazing memories.

Do you have any comments about your program?
I am a very active student, and I enjoy being involved in my program because of the various opportunities it’s given me. It’s a great place for academic excellence, and I enjoy the liveliness of my department — how everyone is involved, friendly and working hard for their futures.
