Happy New Month Everybody! 🎉 The month of ❤️ and my sister's Birthday!
If there is anything I have learnt over the years, it would be that
‘anything worth doing, is worth doing well.’
I remember having to write that, our class motto, at the front of my exercise books in Primary 5. Our teacher would take us back to that saying when she felt that we were not working hard enough, or she wanted to remind us what was important.
...you can't shy away from who you are - Georgie
Over the years I have been blessed that wherever I find myself, I always get stuck in. I tried at times to shy away from roles of responsibility, from voicing my opinion (yes, believe it or not, the attention became annoying at some point). However, sooner or later I found myself in the same situations with the same thing happening again and again. In leaps and bounds I got involved, I socialised and in turn I was given various roles of responsibility. The lesson learned was that you can't shy away from who you are. Never shy away from who you are. With that sort of attitude, and with God’s grace, I have found that you never know what might just happen...✨
We were so graciously accommodated by Channels TV on Friday (my dear friend Mitchell and I). I am sure some of you know of him by now. Mitchell has featured in a number of my posts check them out here.
We are currently members of the Nigerian Law School’s Law Clinic, here at the Lagos Campus. As part of our activities we provide pro-bono legal services to distressed members of society both in Nigeria and abroad. We handle everything from distressed clients that have been victims of fraudulent transactions, to drafting non-disclosure agreements for corporates in the entertainment industry! All for free! It has been a whole lot of work, but a whole lot of fun! I would advise any budding lawyer to join, if/when they get posted to the Lagos Campus in the coming years.
What I love about the Law Clinic, isn’t just the work that we do which gives life to aspects of procedural law, but that we also get to develop a great relationship with the lecturers and with the “D.D.G” (Deputy Director General) which has been a joy. (If you meet me in person, I’ll explain).
One of our most recent initiatives is the development of a new legal drama series, Eko Law, and the law clinicians are very involved in its development, from start to finish: whether analysing the legal issues that arise in each episode, or drafting the agreements that surround the production and development of the project. (Completely up my IP Law Street)
To take us back to the post, the D.D.G., other partners and some of the leaders of the Law Clinic were at Channels TV discussing the show, and they asked us if we would grant them an interview. Mitchell and I volunteered, and here we are! We had SO much fun!
We come up about 8 minutes in! Enjoy!
Never be afraid to speak up my #star. Speak confidently about what you are passionate about, and its never too late to try something new. You never know where it will lead you...
The full interview will air in the coming weeks. Trust me to keep you updated!
Love you all,
