I petitioned for an introductory law class, but my high school principal rejected the idea. There were not any introductory online courses apt for me. Since I could not find law opportunities, I created my own opportunity; during the late summer of 2017, I completed two law internships.
I created this opportunity while accompanying my aunt to court. There, I met Judge Wolfe and Attorney Butler. I spoke with both of them for a while, and eventually I asked if I could complete an internship with them. They both agreed eagerly! I shadowed both of them in their separate offices as well as in the court room. I took notes and recalled important information they taught me. I learned so much that I would not have found from a simple google search, and I made many connections with people that offered to help me with my career goals.
