Two students from Miami Law’s LL.M. in Real Property Development were recently awarded CREW Miami Scholarships. Marcela Camargo and Nathalie Remelus received the scholarships during the December CREW luncheon.
Originally from Colombia, Camargo practiced law in the real estate industry for more than ten years in her native country before pursuing an LL.M. degree at Miami Law.
“After having started the program, I am sure I made the right decision to improve my skills and pursue the goal of being an independent attorney who offers support in real estate matters,” she said.
Camargo’s long term goal is to permanently relocate to Miami.
A licensed real estate sales associate in Florida, Remelus is currently working as an Assistant School Board Attorney for the School Board of Miami-Dade County. She is Haitian, and moved to Miami as a young child. She and her siblings grew up alone in a tiny studio apartment in Miami, all working in order to make ends meet. Remelus was determined to excel in academics, and eventually graduated magna cum laude from college.
“My perseverance through trials and tribulations ignited my determination to succeed,” said Remelus. “I am obtaining an LL.M. in Real Property Development in order to access another avenue through which I can succeed at my professional goals in real estate.”
After completing her degree, Remelus hopes to set up practice in Miami.
