Meet Molly ’12 #MyTrinityJourney


Since Trinity, I graduated from Creighton University in May 2016 with a triple major in Medical Anthropology, Sociology (Applied Data Track), and Health Administration and Policy.  I then attended Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law and graduated in May 2019 with my Juris Doctor and Master of Public Administration.  Currently, I am working at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office as a soon to be Assistant State’s Attorney (I just found out this week that I passed the Illinois Bar Exam!).

Trinity has taught me one thing – I am awesome and I should not be ashamed of it.  During college and law school, I was told the following, “You are too overwhelming,” “You are too political,” “You are a crazy radical feminist,” “You are just a lot,” “Be quiet,” “You are such a party pooper,” “You take things too seriously.”  My response has always been – “If advocating on behalf of those who have experienced gender-based violence makes me too overwhelming for you, there is still a lot of work to be done in our society.”  

Trinity women – you are awesome.  As the late Maya Angelou has said, “Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.”
