Nikki Erece, 3L
My name is Nikki Erece. I am from Hilo, Hawai‘i, and graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo with a B.A. in Administration of Justice and a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies. This past summer I was selected for an internship with the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps. I spent my summer with the 97th Air Mobility Wing at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma working on areas of Civil Law, Military Justice, and Adverse Actions. After graduation and successful completion of the Bar Exam, I’ve been selected to commission into the United States Air Force JAG Corps as a JAG Officer. I currently work as a Licensed Legal Intern at the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office.
I am President for the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, Vice President for the Murrah Student Association, and Social Media Chair for the Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law. I am a member of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity and serve as a Murrah Fellow for the Judge Alfred P. Murrah Center for Homeland Security Law and Policy. Along with being an Ambassador, I am also an Academic Fellow. OCU has presented me with so many different opportunities that I never imagined, especially moving to Oklahoma from Hawai‘i. My dream career would have never been possible if it wasn’t for the connections I have made here. Be resilient and let your hard work, determination, and character speak for you.
