Disability Rights Texas – Virtual


How did you get your job?

I volunteered at Disability Rights Texas through St. Mary’s Alternative Winter Break. I really enjoyed my experience as a volunteer and learned a lot in such a short period of time. Towards the end of my time volunteering, I reached out to the supervising attorney at Disability Rights Texas and inquired about summer internship opportunities.

What did you like most about your job?

I like that I am able to work on projects related to client cases and see the impact of disability rights laws on their lives, as well as work on projects to promote advocacy and awareness of the rights of children with disabilities and the rights of their parents.

How do you think this experience has helped you in your career path?

This experience has helped me in my career path because I get to assist attorneys as they work on various aspects of cases, which has shown me the different factors attorneys consider throughout their representation of their clients.
