In her role as a paralegal, Cheryl will incorporate her Spanish language skills to communicate with the firm’s Spanish-speaking clientele.  During her time at Siena, Cheryl felt fortunate to practice her Spanish not only in the classroom, but also in a widely-published bilingual magazine, Latino New York.  During her interview at PTZSW&R, she had a copy of her article with her and was excited to use a piece of published work as her writing sample.  She was offered the job that day as a bilingual paralegal.

Cheryl writes: "I'm especially appreciative of the opportunity you (Professor Marcela Garces) granted our class [Spanish 370] in the Fall 2011 semester so that our work could be published in Latino NY magazine - I showed off my article at the interview and the gentleman was very impressed."  Click on this link to learn more about the service learning component of Professor Garces' Spanish 370 course.
