“As the grand-daughter of Holocaust survivors who started a new life after having everything taken away from them, I am inspired and motivated by their strength and courage to fight for the rights of those who do not have a voice. I hope that through my hard work and dedication, I can right the wrongs that occur on a daily basis and arm those who have suffered loss or tragedy with the compensation and tools that they need and deserve to move forward in life.”
