Class of 2003

Lael H.
"After graduation I came back to Alaska for a few months and just worked and relaxed, and had friends up to visit. Then in the fall I went to Tunisia for 4 months where I studied Arabic and did an internship for the UN. It was interesting, but a very difficult time to be there. I came back in the spring, and since March I've been working for a law firm here in [Alaska] as a paralegal. I've learned a lot about law and am thinking about going to law school."

"I'm in [Tennessee] after traveling around for several weeks! I went to Europe with my parents and sister for 2 weeks after graduation which was SO fun. Then i was in Boston for a week for [a friend's] graduation festivities. I actually got a job at [the elementary school] where YGC was on the news (during our 2004 Spring Tour in Tennessee, Georgia, and North Carolina)! I'm the Volunteer Coordinator and LOVING it! And I'm studying for the LSAT, and that's going really well!"

Benita J. and Richard R.
Congratulations to Benita and Richard, who are first year students at Georgetown Law School. Richard R. writes, "At the beginning of the semester (Spring 2005), Benita was inspired to organize a Bible study and gospel ensemble for students here. Never before has Gtown law center had a gospel ensemble. We are a group of 12 or so members, and after rehearsing for just one month we had our debut performance at the prayer breakfast of the 2005 first annual black law students association's alumni conference. We sang "Receive Our Praise" and "Sing Praises to Thee." Benita's mom came to town to play the piano for us, and Benita herself soloed with her violin during the first song. We were WELL received! Many noted how much they were deeply moved, encouraged, and inspired by our singing....to the point of tears! A partner for a major corporate firm has invited the group to sing at their firm. How awesome is our God?!? We are so excited about potential this ministry will have both on campus and in the legal community...can you imagine, a gospel ensemble singing for a community that cringes at the mere name of God and His salvation plan! We know YGC shares our love for ministry, which is why i'm sharing this experience with you. Know that YGC's influence remains alive and is breaking new ground!"
