Zoe Cadore’s best friend is time management. On Nov. 11, the University of Houston Law Center 1L (pictured) won the title of Miss Houston for 2013. The next day she submitted her first associate memo for a class.
She has a role model for her multitasking: DaNae Couch, the 2012 Miss Texas, will be a 2L at Texas Tech University School of Law during the 2013-2014 academic year. If Cadore wins the statewide title in July, she plans to take a year’s leave from law school, as Couch is doing this year. Winning the Miss Texas crown means serving as the spokeswoman for the Miss Texas organization and competing for the Miss America title.
Cadore, a former intern for a legal-aid organization in Queens, N.Y., and for U.S. Representative Shiela Jackson Lee (D-Houston), writes in an email that her legal career will focus on litigation or health-care law.
Cadore, who performed contemporary ballet for the talent portion of the November contest, says she uses her dance training as a counterweight for the studying she must do for law school.
“It’s a stress reliever. After studying, I go to a dance class,” Cadore says.
