Azis Toktobaev spent 13 weeks in New York City interning with a human rights group and activist organization and an Immigrant Community Law Center. As an intern, Azis was able to take part in organizing a series of activism events such as a large scale awareness event, a social celebration, a global digital advertising campaign, spoke at a Teen VOGUE Summit and even appeared in a magazine spread. As a law center intern/volunteer, Azis worked on 8 different asylum cases, learning the entire process of the asylum application and legal work behind immigration activism in general.
