2020 Student Speaker

Larissa LouissaintLarissa Louissaint

Larissa Louissaint dreamed of being the first in her family to attend a four-year university. However after researching her options to study law, she concluded it was not going to be  financially feasible to attend the colleges where she had been accepted. That’s when she discovered NSCC’s paralegal program and deemed it perfect:  affordable, with her chosen program, and a short drive from home. She joined the TRIO program but otherwise solely concentrated on her studies her first two semesters. Feeling as she was missing out on something, she then branched out into student activities, successfully running for and attaining three Vice Presidencies: MultiCultural Society, Culture and Inclusion for the Student Government Association; and Leadership for Phi Theta Kappa. Next she became President of the MultiCultural Society and Phi Theta Kappa, and became Chief of Staff for the Student Government Association. She was recently named to the PTK MA All State team for exceptional student leaders. Larissa is transferring to Suffolk University this fall to purse a Bachelor’s degree in Law, after which she plans to attend law school.  She aspires to become an attorney who will advocate for the betterment of others.
