Febres ’22 to Pursue Immigration Law as Paralegal


After four years of building skills and relationships, Bryce Febres ’22 is headed back to his hometown of Miami to pursue a career in immigration law. Febres, a world politics major and Miami Posse scholar, will be working as a paralegal at the law offices of Robert Sheldon, where he will use the interpersonal and language skills developed in classes and internships to help those in his community.

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.”
