In the third grade, Ariana told her class that her dream was to be a judge by day and the first chair flautist in the New York Philharmonic by night. After a brief stint in a Juilliard pre-college program, she decided to focus on a career in law, pursuing a degree in International Relations and Asian Studies at Dartmouth College. At Dartmouth College, Ariana continued to play flute in the chamber orchestra and wrote her honors thesis on the Hong Kong handover from Great Britain to China. After college, she spent time in DC as a paralegal in international trade remedy litigation before starting a JD program at Columbia Law School. Now, she is completing her last year of law school and will join the International Capital Markets team at a global law firm after graduation.
Ariana has experience in helping students apply to undergraduate and graduate school. Her specialty is working with candidates on diversity statements and addendums to explain their unique situation. Additionally, Ariana enjoys assisting with legal writing, grant writing, and scholarship applications.
In her spare time, Ariana enjoys salsa dancing and exploring NYC’s culinary treasures.
