Summer Takeaway

I learned a lot about housing and how much of an impact certain laws can have on people’s lives.

 

Supervisor Quote

Aliyah’s enthusiasm, diligence, and sunny disposition made her an invaluable addition to our team this summer. Despite the remote work set up, Aliyah became an integral part of our work on tenants’ rights; she researched projects independently with ease, and she was always eager to dive into new tasks. I wish Aliyah’s time with us was longer, but we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
