The first day interning for Lawyers to the Rescue was, to say the least, an amazing experience. Being 14 years old and having a summer internship like this, I feel very fortunate, and I’ve just started. Today, I got to know my boss, Spencer M. Aronfeld, and other co-workers. I felt welcomed, and they are a great group of people.

Today I attended my first-ever lunch meeting, during which we discussed some of the upcoming Lawyers to the Rescue functions, including the Public Service Academy events. I am proud to now be a part of the Lawyers to the Rescue team, and to see that around the world people are receiving help who would otherwise not receive any.

It feels nice knowing that I work for an organization that raises funds for those who need it, volunteers its services, defends victims, and does so much more around the world to help others. I look forward to meeting people of all walks of life and will write about by experience this summer.
