About Essaili from https://www.law.ou.edu/node/979:  

Armed with a degree in civil engineering from OU, Essaili, who grew up in Oklahoma City, graduated from the OU School of Law in 2015.  

What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education? 

The person who first inspired me to pursue a legal education was my high school Government teacher, Mr. Williams. He encouraged us to take an interest in government and the laws behind it. With his help, I was able to contact several different lawyers and ask them about the profession. I have wanted to pursue a legal degree ever since. 

What is an interesting fact about you? An interesting fact about me is that I spent last summer traveling through Europe. I backpacked through 10 countries in 30 days.
