StoryCorps Chicago: ‘Sometimes We Go Through Things So We Can Be a Help To Other People'

Beth Johnson and Cynthia Cornelius met each other at the Daley Center. 

Johnson was the supervising attorney there for Cabrini Green Legal Aid. She ran a help desk for people who wanted to seal their criminal records. 

Cornelius  was a law school student in her fifties, a volunteer at the desk. 

They came to StoryCorps recently where Cornelius described how a tragedy with one of her children motivated her to start law school in middle age.

This story was produced through a partnership between StoryCorps and Cabrini Green Legal Aid
