I feel as if the marginalization within the justice system is slowly but surely turning its head to face Latin America. The Statue of Freedom on top of the Capitol will turn its head to face the home of the new Supreme Court Justice.

What has been the most challenging moment during your first three weeks of the internship?
Realizing that there is always work to be done in the office. There is always some task that needs to be completed or a memo to write.
The other 23 interns are absolutely fantastic and wonderful people. Any time with them, or a few of them, is cool.
Witnessing the presence of Latino staff on the Hill because it gives me hope that I can be their colleague at some point in my future.
Change has come to Washington, D.C

Please describe your first week in Washington, D.C.
My first week in Washington, D.C. was amazing. It was amazing for the simple idea that I never thought I would be in the capital of the most powerful country in the world. My upbringing did not give me much to think about in terms of dreams, but my first week in Washington, D.C. was a dream come true for me.
