Gabriella Kluch

My name is Gabriella Kluch, a 2L at NCCU Law, and I have the honor of serving as an MLK Intern at Legal Aid’s Morganton office this summer. My interests and hobbies include painting, LEGO building/collecting, puzzles, and reading fiction and fantasy. As a queer Latine, I have felt pulled towards social justice work. I am someone who believes I can make the most change in my community as an attorney, and I am incredibly excited to develop in my legal education and career to do so.

MLK Intern, Morganton Office

What inspired you to pursue a career in law or social justice?

Seeing the injustice, oppression, historical erasure, and uneven distribution of access to legal resources and representation.

Why did you choose to intern with Legal Aid of North Carolina?

To help underprivileged and under resourced communities. Poor and impoverished people deserve access to legal assistance and representation.

What do you hope to gain from your experience at LANC?

I want to learn how to be more confident in myself and in a legal setting. I want to be able to confidently walk into a courtroom and trust in myself and my esteemed colleagues knowing that we can help our client(s) as best we can.

What are your long-term career goals, and how do you envision your experience at LANC contributing to them?

My long-term career goals are to continue doing justice work. I want to devote my life to making the world a better place for all marginalized communities. I hope to work in civil rights and/or poverty law. I envision my experience at LANC to contribute because the work LANC does directly correlates to what I want to do with career.
