The Texas Law Dog Animal Rescue Scholarship Winners
2020 Winner: Hailey Weisman
Biography: My name is Hailey Weisman and I am a senior at Dripping Springs High School in Dripping Springs Texas. I grew up in suburban Ohio and moved to Texas August 2019! I live with my mom and step-dad in Texas, while my dad is in Ohio. I have an older brother that is currently a Junior at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. I started riding horses around the age of 9 and my love has just grown from there! I mainly grew up around rescue animals so when it came time to look for a horse I knew the path I wanted to take! I am involved in 4-H and actively competing in FFA, where I show goats as well! I will be attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville Texas in the fall of 2021. While at Tarleton, I will be in the College of Agriculture with a major of Land/ Ranch Management with an Equine Science Certificate.
In Hailey’s Own Words: “When I heard that I won the scholarship I was overjoyed and overcome with emotion. I have been working very diligently for the past year getting ready for college and this scholarship just shows that hard work pays off!!”
2019 Winner: Sarah Aminzadeh
Biography: I grew up in Plano, Texas, with my parents and two brothers. I am a triplet! All three of us went to Collin College for the first few semesters and then transferred to the University of North Texas. I graduated with a degree in Psychology knowing it would be great knowledge to have going into law school. I am currently a 2L at UNT Dallas College of Law. Law school has been an incredible journey, and UNT Dallas has been nothing but supportive of my passion for animals. I always knew I wanted to go to law school, but I could never figure out why. It wasn’t until I got involved in the Animal Legal Defense Fund that I found my reason!
In her own words: I am so blessed and honored to be awarded this scholarship! Funnily enough, despite my school’s regular Scholarship Opportunities emails, it wasn’t until five classmates informed me of this scholarship that I decided to look into it. I must have (inadvertently) made it obvious that I am a big animal lover and advocate! It is so reassuring to know that law firms like Aulsbrook Law Firm support animal rescue organizations. It is this kind of support that our community needs! It truly is such an honor to be awarded this scholarship. I cannot thank Aulsbrook Law Firm enough!
