Being able to do impact litigation this summer meant a lot to me because I know that my work was able to not only help our client, but a much broader range of people facing similar issues. I would like to thank Equal Justice America for helping fund my amazing summer and making it possible for me to help make a positive impact in the legal system.
Working with asylum seekers this past summer has been an incredible experience-their unwavering strength and determination to build a better life is inspiring. In addition, the staff at Human Rights First provided a collaborative and supportive environment where I was able to grow and become a better attorney and person. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with attorneys dedicated to upholding human rights.
This summer, I was selected as one of Equal Justice America’s Fellows and am working at Greater Boston Legal Services as a legal intern in their Housing Unit. Currently, I am helping clients protect their rights as tenants as they face unparalleled difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to help low-income families in the Greater Boston area remain in safe and affordable housing.
