Never giving up was what drove 24-year-old Manisha Kumar to achieve her dream of being a lawyer.

Coming from a family where financial difficulties were more worrying.

But Ms Kumar worked her way out to be a working student in order to fulfil her dream.

 

She worked as a paralegal for the Director of Public Prosecution in 2018 and later worked as the Registrar of Titles to earn her way to her Bachelor of Law degree.

Ms Kumar completed her Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree in December 2020 and attained her degree in April 2021.

Following the completion, she started her Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice in January and completed it in June this year.

 

She said she felt nervous but she was proud of what she had achieved for herself.

Ms Kumar said her achievements were all because of the support and blessings of her parents who had done so much for her and her two other sisters.

“My parents struggled while bringing us sisters up,” Ms Kumar said.

 

“All this I have achieved, I owe it to them and I look forward to making them more proud.”

She was admitted to the bar alongside 44 other new lawyers.
