Mikaila says: "I've known since I was little that I have always wanted to be a lawyer. So when I learned about Youth Court I was automatically hooked."
"I've officially decided what kind of lawyer I want to be, all because of Youth Court. My goal is to become a prosecutor for the special victims unit. Youth Court has shown me that all I want to do is help people find justice. When I am older I would love to help out with a program like Youth Court.
Mikaila has been a great asset to this particular Youth Court program and we see a very bright future ahead for her.
Good Luck Mikaila, you are welcome to come back and help out any time!!
