Internship: Administrative Clerk with the Litigation Attorney's Office

My internship was the turning point in my academic career.  By working with a poverty stricken population, I was able to apply my criminology background to understand more about this population’s past.  I quickly realized the interest I had in reducing and possibly preventing youth that fall into criminal crime.
