During her first year of law school she also earned the privilege of participating in the Katrina-Gideon Project in New Orleans, LA and she also had the honor to work as a Judicial Extern to Chief Justice Raye of the Third District Court of Appeal.
Upon graduating law school, Twa’Lea participated in the California Capital Fellows Program. She served as a fellow to Assemblymember Steven Bradford. In this role, she assisted in drafting bills. One of the two bills that she staffed was signed into law by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
