Febres found his way to immigration law after a summer internship at WeCount!, a worker organizing center, and a Hamilton anthropology course titled Crossings and Transgressions. He said both experiences led him to understand how he could make a difference at the local level. Febres also cited numerous internships and a Spanish for Professions course as key to his professional goals.
In the future, Febres hopes to carry lessons from Hamilton and paralegal work into a long-term career in law. “I plan to attend law school within the next few years and propel my career to even greater heights,” he said. “Working in a law office provides ample opportunities to explore the field and ensure that I am on the right track in terms of my plans for career advancement.”

Above all, Febres is eager to immerse himself in community-oriented work and learn from his future colleagues. He also looks forward to returning to the Miami area with a new perspective and new skills.
“I’m so excited to work alongside other professionals who share similar passions. I can’t wait to work with clients and make a difference in people’s lives one day at a time,” he said. “I truly feel peace knowing that I secured not only a post-graduate employment opportunity, but also [one] that it is exactly what I was looking for. It feels especially fitting to find a job that took me back the community that I came from in a different context than I left it in.”
