One definition of superhero that I found during bar prep was that a superhero is "an exceptionally skillful or successful person". I couldn't find a better description of what every student who fights their way through the perils and dangers of bar prep are. So I dubbed myself a Bar Exam Superhero, even going as far as to wear t-shirts showing my motto during the exam.
I graduated law school in December 2012 from Florida A & M University College of Law with honors and with what little sanity I had left. I went into bar prep less than one week after finals. On April 15, 2013, I found out that I successfully passed the bar exam on the first try and the rest is history.
Beyond that, I've worked in various positions from Appeals Specialist for a government subcontractor to being a Disney Cast Member. But in every company I did the same thing eventually: I was a trainer.
This passion to teach and pass my knowledge on to friends and co-workers never dissipated during law school where I was a tutor and ran my own tutoring program. My desire to help only increased during bar prep when I realized how important it was for me to share my experiences with others.
I don't believe in lying to students and I don't believe in hiding from my feelings. Call it stupidity, call it a lack of self-confidence, but it is who I am. And I hope it benefits you as I will hold nothing back from you and I will be as honest with you about the law school experience as I can be.
