MEET KALYN SLIGH
My name is Kalyn Sligh and I have given the opportunity to complete my internship alongside Tangi Carter and her team. I am currently an undergraduate student at The University of Southern Mississippi, majoring in criminal justice and minoring in Spanish. Though I was born in South Carolina, Germany is where I was raised as a military child. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to become a lawyer, and this internship has helped to solidify that decision. My time with Tangi has exceeded any and all expectations I had when I first began. I walked in with the assumption that I would be doing tasks such as filing documents and answering phones. To my surprise, this was not at all the case. I was given hands-on experience from the beginning, through learning how to draft documents, conduct legal research, and shadowing attorneys in courts. Interning with Tangi has allowed me to see the reasons as to why she is so passionate about her work and clients.
When not at work or school I usually spend my free time with friends, family, and my two dogs Pepsie and Zoie. I am lucky to have friends who love to explore the world as much as I do. Every chance we get to plan a trip, we take it. So far, I have been to Spain, Italy, Austria, Africa, and Germany. I have not been able to travel as much stateside but I will definitely get to it.
I am so thankful to have been given the chance to intern with Tangi and her team. My time here has developed my communication and writing skills. Skills that I plan to build on as I enroll in law school this upcoming fall semester. This internship has made me all the more confident of my decision to attend law school. I have met so many wonderful and helpful people along the way. Whether you’re deciding to hire Tangi and her team or looking for an internship, I say go for it. Like me, you will not regret your decision.
