Rosario (Rosy) DeLara decided at a young age that she wanted to become a lawyer. She remembers, "When I was 3 years old, my mom let me watch the O.J. Simpson trial, and I fell in love with litigation. I pointed to the T.V. and told my mom, 'that is what I want to do when I grow up.' I used to dress up in my mom's pant suit, grab her briefcase, and coffee cup, pretending that I was on my way to the courthouse."

At the age of 15, Rosy was a passenger in a rollover car accident and sustained life threatening injuries, the treatment of which would involve sixteen surgeries, including skin grafts and facial reconstruction. She was left over 30% disabled, explaining, "my entire body had been reconstructed. However, as I lay in the ICU, I also recognized that I would not allow myself to be held back, no matter what physical disabilities I may now possess. I did not recognize it at the time, but my accident and recovery would change the course of my life, affecting me not only physically but personally and professionally.  As I recovered, I became more determined than ever to accomplish my goals and excel in pursuit of my dreams. Despite my considerable stay in the hospital, I managed to graduate from high school on time with a 3.8 GPA. My 'little arm' has made me who I am, and I would not change anything!"  

Rosy is the 2L Representative for the Student Bar Association (SBA), the President of the Criminal Law Society (CLS), and the Public Relations Chair for the Public Legal Services Society (PLSS). She is also the chair for the Wellness Week committee and sits on the Events Committee for SBA. She recalls, "I began looking at what organizations to join when I was applying to McGeorge. I was really involved on campus during undergrad (VP of my sorority, Associated Students rep, and Greek Honor Society etc.) and I enjoyed being able to advocate for my peers through these organizations so I decided to join the clubs listed above." I was drawn to SBA because I served as a committee member on the Barrister's Ball Committee and the Wellness Week Committee.

Rosy spent the 2017 summer as a Diversity Fellow working at Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP.   Though originally from Southern California, Rosy has fallen in love with Sacramento. She enjoys attending farmers markets with her fiancé and attending local concerts.  

Rosy is interested in litigation, either criminal litigation or civil. She ultimately hopes to become a judge.
