Safe Passage Project

College Intern

June - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I had the opportunity to work alongside paralegals and pro-bono attorneys in their role providing representation to immigrant children facing deportation. As part of this work, I had extensive one-on-one interaction with clients which meant I was able to directly contribute to active immigration cases.

What I wish was different

The only real downside to this internship experience was having to conduct everything remotely via zoom. This meant I was unable to meet with our Spanish speaking clients in person and attend hearings in court.
