Translating personal declarations, answering phones, filing folders, data entry, and assisted in coordinating Legal Clinics. The agency recently welcomed a therapist who came every Tuesday. I was responsible for recording and confirming all of his appointments.

What advice would you give?

Do not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone! Also, plan ahead and find an internship where you want to go after graduation. Networking is a wonderful thing!
