Transcription: 
My name is Rabeh Soofi. I’m an attorney. I have 2 canine children and a husband. I wanted to be a lawyer as long as I remember. For my whole life there was nothing more appealing to me than using what I knew to help someone who needed it. And I had no idea what being a lawyer would be about. I didn’t know any lawyers. I didn’t have any lawyers as family members. I just knew that this is what I wanted to do more than anything. And being a lawyer is like being an atlas, like a map. And you have to know the ground very well when you are a map. And you help connect people to where they’re going. And you help them avoid dead ends. You help them find the quickest way and the best way to where they need to be. So I love what I do. It’s one of the best parts of my life. And when I’m not doing that, I spend a lot of time with my two Dachshunds. They’re the loves of my life. I love to paint. I love to cook. I love to garden. I love everything about the natural earth. And I love my family. And I’m so grateful that I’m able to use what I know to help people who need it. You may have people in your life that you need. And it’s not always easy finding good doctors, dentists, accountants, or good professional service providers to help you when you really need it. And my whole life I’ve always wanted to be the person that when somebody really needed good advice, when they really needed someone in their corner, that would be me. And I’m grateful that’s what I’ve got.
