For Romina Reyftmann, her upbringing, skillset and education compel her to champion human rights issues and advocate as strongly as she can for National Justice Project clients.
“I think once people are able to take a different world perspective…then they can have a more generous and compassionate view of the world that other people are in and struggles other people are having.”
“I think with the work that we do at the National Justice Project, even the smallest little thing that we do, allows someone to feel that they have a voice and that they’ve got the power to make change in their own life.”
“Being in their corner and advocating for them itself is the greatest reward you can take out of this legal internship.”
“It is not just a normal client-lawyer relationship, I genuinely care for these people like they are my own family.”
“Our clients have to consistently deal with grief and loss, and they are always fighting for social justice – not just for their own family, but to ensure that other families don’t have to go through the same experience.”
