Lady starts own legal firm 26 years later after she saw mom sentenced
A lady has left social media users inspired after sharing reasons that led her to start her own legal firm and at a young age.
The young woman identified as @MsAttorney2U on Twitter narrated how she ended up owning her own legal firm and the circumstances that led to that.
She used her Twitter platform to encourage others who may not know how to channel the negative experiences they go through. This is what she shared online:
”I saw my mom get arrested when I was 8 years old. My first time being in a courtroom was watching her get sentenced. I decided then, at 8 years old that I was going to become an attorney. Here I am 26 years later owning my own firm.”
Her inspirational post received more than 188k likes and more than 15k retweets.
Here are some of the comments from the post:
”We need more people like you! I had to watch my (undocumented) mom get arrested at 15 and had to translate what the cop was saying to her while she was getting arrested. One of the scariest moments of my life.”
”I saw my dad using my mom’s insurance money to build us a home, a few years later he passed on, everything went to my stepmom who chased us away, lived from relatives to relatives, hand to mouth, begged on streets and today I am a civil engineer professionally registered and rebuilding my home.”
”Way to go! That took a lot of hard work! You should be proud of yourself. I am always telling the students I teach that they can be whatever they want to be! Does not matter your situation, if that is your goal and that is what you desire, no one can keep you from your heart Heart suit desire!”
”I watched my twin sister battle Tuberculosis, 2 years later she died. Made me promise her I would be a doctor and here I am 2 years into med school and we are just getting started.”
