My name is Tamia Hackworth, and I’m currently a high school intern. I’ve been at the firm for almost a year, about eleven months. I enjoy being able to comfortably speak with all the attorneys and paralegals and all the executive staff here.
As a high school intern, it feels like you’re very low on the total hull, but everyone makes sure you’re comfortable and you’re able to speak to anyone. I really appreciate the family environment the firm has to offer. Also, I appreciate how everyone in the firm is very hard-working. No one is lazy. No one just doesn’t have work to do. Everyone’s constantly busy, and I just admire that.
The most valuable thing I’ve learned is that if you’re going to do something, make sure it’s your best work. And to always be confident and your work and how you speak and anything presents because it’s your brand.
One of my proudest accomplishments was when I started working with the marketing department and I was able to curate some polls for the social media sites, like their accounts like Twitter and Facebook and it was very cool to see my polls to actually get published. My advice is to take advantage for everything the firm has to offer. Talk to everyone. Get to know your colleagues, because everyone has such a wealth of knowledge to bring to the table. And to have fun.
