Farewell to our Seniors
Marisa has been a youth court attorney for 3 years. When asked what she enjoys she said: "I love being able to affect the youth of my community in a positive way while also gaining experience in a courtroom that will help me once I start my own career as a lawyer."
Her favorite memory: "There was a particular case I had where the child was very apologetic over what they had done. After the arraignment was over the child & their parents were very thankful for the youth court program & for my part helping them. At the end of my interaction with them I felt like I had really made an impact and an impression in this child's life."
Youth court has helped Marisa "find my voice". She wishes she would have started out less shy so she could have experienced more in the beginning.
You will be missed Marisa!
