I am Lola, I’m 24 and currently studying the LPC as part of my training contract offer – in September I will start at my firm as a Trainee Solicitor.

This is quite a monumental and exciting point in my life and I want to share my experience and inspire others out there just like me (young, black, not necessarily privileged, doesn’t fit the ‘typical’ mould) through the #IssaMovement platform. I think giving back to the black community and empowering the younger generation that will be the leaders of tomorrow is so important.

Likes – Taking risks, being independent and self-sufficient, not following the typical route, meeting new people, talking, debating / arguing, reading, socialising and achieving

Dislikes – Loud chewing, slurping, selfishness

Hobbies – Sleeping, bouldering, box jumping and travelling

Guilty Pleasure – Real Housewives of Atlanta

I am driven, passionate and original, ultimately at the heart of my identity I love helping others, collaborating with people and bringing out the best in myself and others.

Motto – No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and never give up.
