Hi Destiny,

Just like you, my mother inspired me to become an attorney as well. It is always important to enter into a career that you respect and that you are inspired by mentors to enter into. My mother is a very strong advocate and having watched her in the court room for many years, I became inspired to do something that I love just as much as she does. Throughout high school, college, and law school, I had tried to join clubs and activities that challenged me to become a better advocate and to develop skills that would make me a better attorney. I am constantly inspired by my mother to be better and get better at what I love to do and the only way to do that is to challenge yourself. Keep looking to your mother for inspiration as you continue through the process of your career!

Good luck!

Hi Destiny! That's great that your mom inspires you! I don't know if I was ever inspired to be a lawyer. My family is a bunch of lawyers, so it's always something that been a part of my life. Being a lawyer is a lot of work and I like working hard and thinking about different sides of a problem. Also, I like doing homework and reading, and being a lawyer involves a lot of reading and writing. I find that being a lawyer really allows me to pursue a lot of different types of law and areas simply because I have curious and passionate. My advice is to follow your passion and interests.

Christine’s Answer

Excellent question Destiny. My grandmother inspired me to become an attorney. I am third generation Italian- American and the women in my family escaped their impending marriages to the local mobsters for a better life. My grandmother was a seamstress and always wanted a better life for her daughters but never appreciated the opportunities that were indeed available to her daughters. My mother became an executive secretary to a president of a gas company, which at the time was a incredible position. When I was a child, I had the ability to communicate effectively for what I wanted. My grandmother always said that is was going to be a lawyer. However, I did not know that that involved as no one in my family was an attorney. After graduating college, I worked at law firm to ensure I "knew" what I was getting into. It was hard work and I was disciplined in my studies. My grandmother was so proud when I graduated law school and was sworn into the bar. While I do not currently practice law, having a legal background has allowed me to be successful in my current position.
