Experiences that deepen our passions and stir us in new directions do not happen every day. My internship at a law firm in Boston, MA this summer was one of such experiences. From the opportunities I had, people I met, and tasks I completed, I was able to grow as an individual, gain new knowledge, and develop lifelong skills. The arraignments I witnessed, court hearings I attended, writing legal memorandums, and every learning opportunity I was posed with increased my admiration and knowledge of the legal profession. I expanded my network and developed lasting relationships with talented professionals. Most importantly, my experience equipped me with the courage to take intentional steps and make decisions to help me get to where I want to be. This summer for me, was all about growing, and learning that I can grow in many different directions where I am planted.
