Hello! My name is Alex Kurtz, and I am excited to be interning this summer with Washington Council of Lawyers.
I am an undergraduate at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, and I am pursuing a degree in Political Science with minors in Economics and Spanish. In my free time, I am active in my student government association; I currently serve both as a senator and my class Vice President. I am also the Vice Delegation Chairperson of my college’s delegation to the Maryland Student Legislature, which is a model of the Maryland state legislature. I love helping other students, so I have also become a Peer Consultant in the Writing Center and a Peer Mentor, where I assist incoming freshmen.
When I learned about the mission of Washington Council of Lawyers, I was thrilled about the chance to work with a group whose values aligned so well with my own. Throughout my life, I have tried to look at injustice as an opportunity for change, rather than as something that must simply be accepted. I hope to contribute to this change myself one day, either by attending law school or by earning a Ph. D. and educating others. I look forward to spending the summer learning more about career opportunities in the field, and to working with an organization that aims to educate, expand, and enhance the public interest community.
