Our student intern Patsy Martinez was born in Jalisco, Mexico and migrated
with her parent to California in pursuit of a brighter future. Patsy Martinez
is the first in her family to graduate from high school and was immediately
accepted to several University of California schools. However, because
Patsy Martinez remained undocumented until 2007, she was unable to pay
the tuition at the University of California schools and instead attended
Cal Poly Pomona University.
While at Cal Poly Pomona, Patsy Martinez was the President of the Kellogg
Honors College and she also served as the Treasurer of the Honors Ambassadors'
Club. In addition, she graduated summa cum laude and was the Valedictorian
of her major.
Upon graduating from Cal Poly Pomona, Patsy Martinez worked at the Neighborhood
Legal Services during her summer and was selected to serve as a Graduate
Fellow for the Justice Corps. At both places, she provided legal assistances
to hundreds of self-represented litigants.
In 2013, Patsy Martinez was accepted into Loyola Law School. At Loyola,
Patsy Martinez excelled during her first year, a very difficult thing
to achieve. In addition, she is involved in extracurricular activities.
She currently services as the Secretary for the La Raza de Loyola Society.
Patsy Martinez has proven to be a brilliant young lady who is full of
potential. We are very happy to have her working us this summer. While
interning at our office, Patsy Martinez has demonstrated her legal potential
through her excellent writing, attention to detail, and her quick learning
and organization skills. We have no doubt that she will excel in all of
her future endeavors and we look forward to witnessing her future accomplishments.
