Ever made history twice?
Meet Gabrielle Turnquest. At 18, she is the youngest African-American to pass the Bar of England and Wales.
Although Turnquest passed the bar in the UK, she will not work there. Once she returns to America, she wants to qualify as a lawyer here.
As proud as her parents must be of her success, this also means she is called to the Bahamas Bar, the country of her parents, and she hopes to work there.
Gabrielle took the course, at the University of Law, along with her sister Kandi, who also passed her exams but at the age of 22.
The teenager, who is originally from Windermere, Florida, hopes eventually to be a fashion law specialist.
She said: “I am honoured to be the youngest person to pass the Bar exams but, really, I was not aware at the time what the average age was.
“I didn’t fully realise the impact of it.”
Gabrielle has already made history at her previous university, Liberty University in Virginia, where she was the youngest person to finish an undergraduate degree there, in psychology, at the age of 16. — history made twice. boom!
Send your Congrats to Gabrielle @babylitigator, and her sister Kandi. Great accomplishments!
