Aspiring lawyer wins essay contest offering strategies for promoting alcohol addiction
DALLAS, TX, August 08, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg in Dallas awarded university student RL with its Alcohol Addiction Awareness Scholarship. The current marketing major is planning to further her education by attending law school, practicing corporate law, and making an impact on her future clients’ businesses.
RL, who has witnessed the effects of alcohol addiction firsthand with people close to her, was drawn to the scholarship because it would allow her to share her passion for addressing alcohol addiction and destigmatizing it. According to RL, the scholarship gave her the opportunity to articulate her “passion for spreading awareness and promoting change in our society’s approach to addiction.”
Scholarship Winner RL Appreciates the Multifaceted Nature of This Issue
In her essay, RL highlights strategies she recommends for raising awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse and addiction among young people. Some of the strategies she suggests include:
– “Providing education and resources in schools”
– “Partnering with community organizations to host events and workshops”
– “Utilizing social media and other digital platforms to reach a wider audience”
RL says it is important to tailor strategies to appeal to an audience of young people across the country, whether doing this through the classroom or on social media platforms.
The Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg wants to promote advocacy for awareness of this issue and inspire people to learn more about addiction and alcohol abuse. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH 2021) estimates that around 13% of full-time college students ages 18 to 22 meet the criteria for alcohol use disorder (NSDUH,2021). These troubling percentages indicate why it is important to emphasize the issue to a younger audience. “Isenberg has seen firsthand how alcohol addiction affects members of our community affected by alcohol addiction,” the firm says.
Profound Impact of the Scholarship for RL
RL says this scholarship will grant her the opportunity to focus more time on her “studies, extracurricular activities, and personal growth.” She currently interns at an adventure tourism company as a social media marketing advisor and wants to continue to intern and grow her experience for a successful career in corporate law. She will also use this scholarship to help others grow by giving back to her community through volunteering and mentoring.
