Romana Lavalas is a high-flying attorney out of Syracuse New York. After spending a decade in the District Attorney’s office in Onondaga County, Lavalas made a run for judge last year. Although she wasn’t able to get the votes necessary to defeat the incumbent, she ran a strong campaign and presented herself as part of the future of judicial leadership in the state of New York.
Like so many black women around the United States, Lavalas constantly grapples with the challenges that come with succeeding in a world where there can sometimes be obstacles to your success. In spite of all of this, Lavalas works harder than the rest, stays focused and is one of a large army of “Quiet Michelle Obamas” who are changing the world.
