According to TIME, Zimmerman told his friend Leanne Benjamin he’d like to pursue a career in the legal field so he can “help other people like me.”

“He sees it as a potential path to help other people like himself,” Benjamin told Reuters.

Zimmerman was in the process of studying for an associate’s degree in general studies last year, when he was kicked out due to the high profile case with Trayvon Martin.

“He wanted to be a cop for awhile, but he’s talked about going to law school,” said Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara told Reuters. “I will not be surprised if he ends up in criminal law. His dad was a judge, and he wants to be a prosecutor or a lawyer.”
