About Terrance

After becoming the only person to receive two scholarships to study French in France from Oxford and Cambridge University's Oxbridge Academy, I became a student at the Armand Hammer United World College of the American West(UWC-USA), a small international school in Montezuma, NM, which was home to 200 students from 92 countries and, at the time, the most selective institution in the world, accepting only 3% of applicants.

After graduating, I accepted a full academic scholarship to attend Georgetown University. There, I studied International Business and the Japanese Language, while serving as the president of Resonant Essence Live(REL), Georgetown's premier urban a cappella group.

As president of REL, I helped to coordinate our schedule and arrange music for our numerous performances, including a special Christmas performance for Vice President Joe Biden at the Vice Presidential Residence. Before graduation, I spent a year studying Japanese in Tokyo, Japan, where I taught English at a small, private school in Nerima, Tokyo.

After scoring in the 97th percentile on the LSAT, I turned down Columbia, UCLA, and UVA to accept a full academic scholarship from UC-Berkeley School of Law. After spending a summer working in the legal department of the Writers Guild of America, West, I spent a semester externing as a legal extern at the Directors Guild of America before finishing my final semester at Berkeley from which I graduated in May 2016.

I have studied the French language for over 12 years, both here in the United States and in France. I have numerous French acquaintances and many fond memories of my time spent studying in Paris and Montpellier, France.

I have always read at an exceptionally high level, and my SAT reading scores were above the 95th percentile when I applied to Georgetown University. I also scored above the 95th percentile on the SAT II Literature subject test.

I scored in the 97th percentile (top 3%percent of the country) on the LSAT, but it was my personal statement and statement of diversity that secured me a full academic scholarship to UCLA, UC-Berkeley, and UVA School of Law. I would like to use my experience both before and during law school to help other students achieve the same.

I have performed with Grammy-Award winning artists and at the Kennedy Center. I have studied music and voice for over 16 years, and I have a passion for music and teaching, which I would love to impart on other music lovers.

I have taught and been a tutor here in the United States as well as in Tokyo, Japan. Over my lifetime, I have been fortunate enough to have received almost a million dollars in academic scholarships, and I would love the opportunity to show other students how to do the same.
