Women’s History Month: Camila Rohena-MaldonadoPDF
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Robinson Bradshaw is highlighting women from the firm throughout March. Meet first-year associate Camila Rohena-Maldonado.
Describe what you do at Robinson Bradshaw.
As a first-year associate, I am gaining a wide range of knowledge and legal experience by working with attorneys from all departments and practice groups. I have also had the opportunity to connect with the community through pro bono work.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
I enjoy working as a team with our clients to find solutions to complex questions and learning from my colleagues along the way.
What advice would you give a younger version of yourself?
Pause to celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small they may feel. Whether it is finally mastering a skill you have been working on or getting through your task list on a tough Monday, pausing to say “I did that” and giving yourself a moment to recharge is a great way to create positive momentum for the bigger challenges that will come your way.
Who is a female role model you admire, and why?
I have always admired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for her strength and intelligence. She also made it easier for so many women and girls of similar backgrounds to imagine themselves accomplishing their biggest goals.
Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn't learn from your website bio.
Although I do not have formal training, I like to sing and used to perform in high school. My family was not even aware of this hobby until I won third place for a performance at a statewide competition!
