"I have found that a good sponsor can give you visibility within the organization. Increased visibility leads to more opportunities and a better network, especially among the company's decision-makers. A sponsor can start this cycle of visibility, and then help keep it going."

This journey isn’t just about hard work; it`s about continuous learning, building a strong network, and staying committed to excellence and integrity, principles I learned from watching my father`s dedication to justice.

From environmental law aspirations to championing women of color in the legal profession through CCWC, it`s been a path of growth, discovery, and resilience.

Check out the full interview for my insights on becoming a top lawyer, embracing a growth mindset, and why building a personal brand is crucial in our digital age. Read now using the link in my bio.
