Say hello to our summer intern, Faith Walker, a rising senior at The University of Nebraska at Omaha.
I am a rising senior at the University of Nebraska at Omaha with majors in International Studies and English. I grew up in small towns across Nebraska and Iowa before I was recruited to Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart for high school. Omaha has been my home ever since!
In high school, I joined and led clubs like Louder than a Bomb, Discrimination Stops Here, the Literary Magazine, and Race for the Cure. In college, I have been a student senator and mentor, advocated to the Nebraska state legislature about the rights and protections of minors, and worked in nonprofits with varied missions across Omaha. After I graduate, I plan to join the Peace Corps and then go to law school.
After my experiences with the Nebraska state legislature, I’m passionate about public policy and the interaction of policy and law. My internship this summer with Washington Council of Lawyers will expose me to the legal side of things: the opportunities for activism within litigation and the role of public-interest lawyers in protecting and expanding civil rights. I’m extremely excited!
