Thanks to Youth Chief Justice, Noelle Mitchell, for sharing her experiences and future plans!
What are some experiences and/or current events that piqued your interest in law?
Growing up in a family that openly invited discussion and healthy debate about politics and matters of civic duty and morality made me feel free to explore different aspects of public policy and law from a young age. I really largely have my parents to thank for fostering my passion for serving others. And as I grew older, I began to realize the potential of law for use to serve others.
Share some goals you have for your time as Chief Justice.
First and foremost, my primary goal is to increase awareness about the Appellate section and all the great things that are happening in our program. Second, I hope to do my best to ensure that all Appellate delegates have all the information they need to be successful and to make sure they’re connected with the right people to help mentor them.
What are some of your future educational and career plans?
I’m planning on attending college as a political science/political philosophy major. I have applied to several colleges around the country…I will go to college wherever the Lord leads! At the moment, I hope to obtain a law degree after receiving my bachelor’s so I can become an advocacy lawyer for children, abused women, or refugees.
What are some of your unique talents and hobbies?
I’m heavily involved with Theater and One Act Play at my school as well as with Thespian Society! Theater is actually how I learned to speak with an Irish and British accent. My favorite musical to listen to at the moment is “Come From Away” about the 38 planes that were forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland after the US airspace closed as a result of the 9/11 attacks.
