TJSL students reunited in our nation’s capital the week of June 10th – not as busy law students studying for finals, but as distinguished summer interns in the Washington, D.C., area.
Third-year students Randy Abreu, Samantha Morales and Brittany Walker and second-year student Christina Hebert took the road less traveled to move 2,684 miles away and fully immerse themselves in their coveted summer intern positions.
Randy Abreu is an intern at the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), a non-profit, civil-rights and media advocacy organization, as part of a fellowship through the prestigious Google Policy Fellowship program.
Samantha Morales and Christina Hebert are both interning through the Government Honors program. Morales is an intern with the Department of Justice's Office of Tribal Justice, the legal policy advisor to the Attorney General over Indian law and the principal point of contact for Indian Tribes. Hebert is an intern at the Disability Rights Office of the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. government agency for telecommunications regulation.
Walker is an intern with the General Counsel of Americans for Prosperity, a non-profit organization committed to educating people about the value and operation of an open and market-oriented economy.
The four students traded internship stories and advice over dinner at a local D.C. restaurant, and set up ongoing group activities to support one another this summer.
