27.05.21. Called to the Bar of England and Wales on my 24th birthday.
Nelson Mandela once said, “it always seems impossible, until it is done.”Studying the BPTC in ordinary circumstances was challenging. Studying during a pandemic was *incredibly* challenging.
Performing advocacy exams from my bedroom praying my connection would hold up. Taking the ‘big three’ from my kitchen, experiencing a neighbourhood power cut just before my ethics exam. Having my exam crash halfway through and losing all my work due to a software issue.
Having to take the paper again, finishing later than all my peers. I tapped into a part of me I didn’t know existed and I fought on. It was so worth it. God is faithful.
I couldn’t have done this without my wonderful mother, father, and closest ones’ support. They know exactly who they are, and I will forever be indebted to them. It really does take a village.

We wish her all the best in her law career.
