Meet Florida Coastal School of Law 3L Student Anique Samuel
(full story below)
Born in the twin islands of Antigua & Barbuda, Anique immigrated to the U.S. in 2006 to pursue a college degree. After graduating from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, several advisers encouraged her to work in a law firm before attending law school.

“My experience working in the law firm was extremely rewarding because it enhanced my desire to become an attorney,” Anique says.

“When I entered law school, I didn’t know what to expect,” she admits. “I was told it was going to be super hard and competitive, and it certainly was, but with God and a very encouraging support system of family members and close friends, I made it to my third year.”

“Law school has not been an easy road for me. There have been many times when I wanted to quit because of how overwhelming it was, but then I reminded myself of the reason why I wanted to become a lawyer.”

Originally focused on corporate law, Anique became very interested in the field of immigration after participating in FCSL’s Immigrant and Human Rights clinic. Since then, she finds it gratifying to assist clients with the process of becoming a U.S. citizen.

“Law school has helped me to understand myself at a deeper level, and I’ve learned to listen more before giving my opinion on different matters,” she says. “I have also learned that I’m capable of handling more than I thought I could.”

Anique reveals that she has become more vocal on different matters in the last two years, and now has a strong desire to serve as “the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves.” She recently attended the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Conference, and looks forward to learning more from attorneys who are experts in immigration law.”

Ms. Samuel is currently a Student Clinician in the Immigrant and Human Rights Clinic, as well as an AILA Student Member.
