Thanks to International House Summer Intern!

Allee Olive, a student at UNC Chapel Hill, worked this summer in the Ginter Immigration Law Clinic. Under the mentorship of Immigration Attorney Anne L. Crotty, Allee has assisted with administrative work, and has worked closely with the paralegals and attorney in interviewing prospective clients. She has been an invaluable asset to International House.

The internship has allowed Allee to gain exposure and broaden her horizon. "My experience working at IH was really better than I could have expected. When I came in I had no idea what I was going to be doing but was excited to learn about immigration law and work for a non-profit. I fit right into the law clinic and never really felt like I was new. Everyone was so helpful. I always felt like I was doing worthwhile work and really felt like my work and opinions mattered. I got to meet so many interesting people and honestly learned so much about the international community and how our immigration system works. I loved working with the paralegals and felt so comfortable!" Allee said.
