"My internship at Baldwin, Molina & Escoto, Attorneys at Law in Washington, D. C. was a great experience. I consider it a defining moment in not only my educational career but also my life in general. Spending time day in and day out in a courtroom was an amazing experience. The best novelists would have had trouble coming up with some of the cases I observed, and it was almost surreal to be part of the action as a 20-year-old college student. It was a great feeling to know that I impacted people's lives and helped fight for them when their freedom was on the line."
