These days…I just finished a research internship at the Supreme Court of New York State, where I audited guardianship annual reports, administered group lectures in Judaic criminal penalties, and helped facilitate a smooth running of the judge’s chambers.

LAS students come from all over the world to study at an institution where their religious values are in harmony with the successful pursuit of their academic aspirations. And these five young women—hailing from Florida, Chicago, Flatbush, South America, and Crown Heights—are no different. Studying marketing, forensics, occupational therapy, biology, and psychology, Tarynn, Sarah, Nechama, Sara, and Rochi share a bit about their backgrounds, career plans, favorite classes, and more.

Long-time tap dancer Rochi wants to earn her doctorate in clinical psychology, but she’s interested in the business side of psychology—either pursuing industrial psychology, or opening up her own clinic and hiring psychologists. She was inspired to enter the business world by her fiancé, who opened up two businesses. “I’ve seen how exciting it is to work for yourself and see the rewards coming to you directly,” she says.  And she already has experience in business. As a property manager at a real estate company, she’s responsible for 150 company-owned buildings. She deals with applications for buying properties, renting and selling, Notice of Violations, tenant payments, field agents, and evictions. “Everything besides the bookkeeping," she says.

Why physical therapy? Because I like the hands-on experience with patients, and I like watching my patients’ steady progress and recovery. My parents needed physical therapy a few years ago after they were injured in a car accident. They became very close to their PT, and I became fascinated by the field. Every time he came over for a session, I badgered him with questions.

When her AP teacher told her about forensic psychology, Sarah was hooked. After graduation, she’s taking a year off (“not everything can be learned in a classroom,” she says) to work as a paralegal and get her feet wet in the law industry. Then she’ll be off either to law school, where she plans on specializing in mental health, or to graduate school for psychology, where she’ll specialize in forensics.

After interning at PR firm Michael Rogers in Manhattan, where one of her clients included innovative cleansing product WineWipes, Tarynn is now a project manager for Clive-NY, a branding agency for small to midsized companies (such as new gourmet supermarket Breadberry in Boro Park.) Her responsibilities cover everything from researching, copywriting, creating mood boards, organizing photoshoots, and coordinating launch parties.

Besides interning in the ER department at Downstate Hospital, Nechama shadows a PA. “Watching her diagnose patients, I’m getting an advanced knowledge of the field before I’m actually in it.” But she’s also a medical assistant twice a week at Pediatrics Associates, where she greets patients, takes their vitals and history, and does odds and ends. “Just typing for the doctor lets me learn a tremendous amount about what typical well visits and sick visits are like.”

Why LAS? Lots of reasons. One, the separate classes, which cater to the frum community. Two, classes are small, so it’s easier to pay attention and be more interactive. Three, I can study with people similar to me. And four, the college is effort-driven. You can get a really fantastic and challenging education if you put in the effort. These are the reasons I\'m here.

Why law? I believe I possess the skills that can contribute towards a successful career in the legal field, such as strong analytical skills and the ability to reason and think critically.

After seminary, Sara took a second gap year to intern for Palo Alto, California’s The Friendship Circle, an organization that pairs up special-needs children and teens with high school volunteers to participate in a variety of fun, exciting programs. “I’d never worked with special needs kids before, and the internship really let me get a glimpse of what it was like. While there, I came to realize that I wanted to specialize in the special-needs population after completing my coursework for OT.”
