Moriah is a native San Diegan and attended High Tech High International (HTHI) in Point Loma. As a teenager at HTHI, Moriah’s interest in the legal field was ignited when an opportunity to volunteer with San Diego Teen Court was presented. Moriah served as Presiding Juror hearing the cases of teens, often times at-risk youth, and providing restorative justice for those first time offenders. Moriah went on to intern at the San Diego County Public Defender Office and has been passionate about law, politics and social causes ever since. She has volunteered for numerous local political campaigns and social welfare causes including serving hot meals to fellow San Diegans in downtown.
Moriah enjoys international travel and is currently working on collecting stamps in her second passport book. Her hobbies include studying Mandarin Chinese, practicing conversational Arabic and Spanish, attending fashion shows and fundraisers for a good cause, cruising the San Diego bay, and visiting local farms to learn about achieving wellness from sustainable whole foods.
