One of the more reluctant media figures to emerge from the George Zimmerman trial was 19 year-old Rachel Jeantel, the last person to speak to unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, aside from the man who killed him.
Her contentious exchanges with defense attorney Don West sparked conversations about cultural differences, and the way many in the media reacted to them.
Jeantels unpleasant experience in the courtroom hasnt scarred her too deeply, however, as she told radio host Ricky Smiley, last week, that she aspires to become an attorney.

I suspect that rocket surgery school will offer her scholarships.
She’s more DMV material, IMHO.
I’m not 100% sure but I think you have to read cursive to be a lawyer. 2nd hurdle would be graduating high school, getting a 4 year undergraduate degree and then 3 years of law school.
What was her second choice? :-)
Sweet, merciful Jesus.
And I want to be the King of England, you puddle of sub-human monkey vomit, fat, pig, slut!
“Rachel Genteal goes to Law School”. This would be a great comedy on CBS.
PROFESSOR: “Rachel, you spelled I am a lawyer as “i is a loyer”. Can’t you spell?
RACHE: “Shut up, cracka’. Can’t you see I’m eating 5 cheeseburgers?”
That’s retarded, sir.
