The internet thanks Goodwin for sharing her inspirational journey
"My mom was a single parent with 2 young boys that put herself through law school. We were poor. She didn't pass the bar. She never gave up. She passed it and she's a prominent judge now. You got this."
"You’ve got this! From a 40-year-old who just passed the IL bar on my 3rd try."
"I’m celebrating you! Spend a moment to think about all you’ve accomplished!! Revel in what you’ve done, then start prepping for the next bar. Let me know if I can hook you up with some great legal mentors."
"I failed my first time too. Hopefully, you know exactly what you need to focus on now. But first, take some time to grieve this. IT's bad in a way that very few people will get. Blow off some steam. Go have a good time and get this stumble out of your brain. Then use it as fuel."
@ashlie_weeks responded with:
"You worked incredibly hard. The TX bar is notoriously difficult. I had 2 friends who did not pass it either, after several times, and both went on to be incredibly successful attorneys in their chosen subjects. You should be very proud of yourself. Chin up. You'll get it done."
"This is the best suggested tweet I have ever been notified about! I am so very proud of you and can't help but feel like this is a sign to stop contemplating and follow thru with things in life!! Following so I can congratulate you next year when you pass your Bar!!"
High achieving law graduate wins his first court case, Mzansi is the best and sends him massive praise
Previously, YEN.com.gh reported that Giscard Kotelo is a budding young lawyer who just reached a significant milestone in his new career. In a Twitter post, he announced he won a case for the first time.
He graduated laude and holds an LLB degree from Unisa, and specialises in data protection and privacy law.
In a day, the post has garnered plenty of attention from around Mzansi as people send Giscard praise and excited messages of congrats. However, one person was confused about what case he was referring to, resulting in an amusing comment.
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
