" Everyday I get to work with TRII, I am filled with anticipation that the work we are doing will hopefully alter at least one person's life for the better. I am driven by the stories I hear and the hope I have for these people, even when they seem to have none left. I am so excited to be a Millennium Fellow so that I can hear others passion for their own projects and share my own, potentially blending and integrating ideas to create another even more auspicious vision. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Right to Immigration Institute
The Right to Immigration Institute (TRII-pronounced “Tree”) is an immigration nonprofit and the first of its kind to apply the law school clinic model to the undergraduate level. By training undergraduate students so they can become DOJ accredited representatives, TRII aims to make sure no one must face the immigration process alone. We provide representation and aid to disadvantaged members of the community in need of access to representation in matters of seeking citizenship or asylum.
About the Millennium Fellow
I'm currently a sophomore at Brandeis University where I study Politics, Linguistics, and Musical Theater. I have a particular interest in studying the Middle East, specifically the Arab-Israeli Conflict. In my free time, I work as an EMT, perform in musicals, go to marches and protests, and in the summer, I'm a camp counselor!
