Hi my name is Tamia Hackworth, I go to Fredrick Douglas Academy in Harlem New York. I am currently an intern at Adam Leitman bailey P.C. On a daily basis, I work with the paralegals with their cases helping them file, put together documents, scanning, printing and all of those things.
What makes Adam Leitman Bailey so unique is the emphasis on women and bringing women into the workforce where it is mostly a male dominated field such as law especially real estate law. That is very interesting and I personally was interested in law but I never really thought of pursuing it so definitely coming to Adam Leitman Bailey and interning really made my decision, this is what I want to do.
Adam is such a crazy boss, crazy in a good way, though. He is very friendly, outgoing, he will just come up to you like “ Hi, how are you? How’s your day going?” and it’s very great because not a lot of bosses will take the time out to talk to you especially being a high school intern, I’m so lone in the total pole, but he really cares about the people who work here.
Words of wisdom he told me was to keep my GPA up and never doubt yourself basically, never doubt yourself. When Brianna first told me that I got the scholarship I almost wanted to cry, I was so happy. It was the best news I have ever had and it was definitely the motivation I needed. With school, the college process, having two APs working, it becomes a burden but when you realise there are people behind you that support you and believe in you, it just gives you that extra push.
It was definitely something that I needed, especially financially as college is really expensive and I’m not rich so it will definitely help. For anyone who plans on working here or interning of the sorts, definitely come to Adam Leitman Bailey, it’s such a positive working environment. Nobody is mean, there is no cattiness, everyone is like a family.
