She wants to “work hard to show how being a Latina is an important part of who I am,” she told Reuters. Her new role as the head of the journal is a huge accomplishment for her and for the wider Latinx community. One of the most prestigious law journals in the United States, The Harvard Law Review has been running at Harvard for 135 years. Only the top law students are considered for staff positions for law review journals, who often became respected luminaries in their fields. Within The Harvard Law Review, three current members of the Supreme Court once served as editors. And in 1990, its first Black president was Barack Obama so to now see her make history as the first Latina to hold this position is a sign of barriers being broken.
