It is not only my dream, but my God-given gift to be a servant to others. In particular, interning in the legal profession would allow me to continue my commitment to ridding homelessness and eradicating unequal education for all students. I feel confident that I could contribute substantively to this program while strengthening the skills I’ll need for my career. As an elementary school teacher for Teach for America, I was able to see how various practices disproportionately affect students of color and without equal education, life as we know it, in essence, can never be truly equal.

For two years, I have worked at the United States Veterans Administration Domiciliary for Homeless Veterans. One veteran (whom I grew to admire) thanked me for simply listening to him vent about being proud of being drug and alcohol free for six months. He specifically indicated that our conversation gave him the gusto to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting that day—one in which he served as the group leader. This experience revealed to me what I already believed—that people are inherently good. We simply need the right set of circumstances in front of us in order for our best selves to shine. And every once in a while, some of us need second chances.

Since my career goals are vested in civil rights and equal opportunity, and discrimination generally, I have facilitated various presentations for homeless veterans, parents, school workers, and students on their rights and opportunities to advocate for themselves. This semester, I was elected as the 1L Section Representative and joined the Child and Youth Advocates, situations which have exposed me to the work lawyers can do to promote the rights of students. Additionally, joining the Women of Law has kept me updated on the issues facing female minority students. My work as Section Representative continues to keep me advocating for my peers on issues that affect us as we matriculate through law school. This experience has begun to give me experience in working with people, and working with your company would allow me to gain experience advocating for the specific client populations I hope to assist in my career.

Given my background in education and talent for leading students, instructors, and teaching teams toward success, I feel I am in a great position to make a positive impact your company. I would be very happy to work on cases dealing with language or national origin discrimination, but I’d also be delighted at the opportunity to work in any of the areas on which your office focuses, including LGBT and disability rights. I am eager to have the opportunity to work for this program and work on issues that enhance our country. I hope that you will humbly accept my letter and consider me for opportunities that may come.
