Today I was admitted into practice - I am so proud of myself right now, it feels like the culmination of 7 and a half years of study, hard work, sweat and tears.
My husband and my parents came to the ceremony with me - the partner of a law firm I worked at last year, an old friend, moved my admission. I felt absolutely surrounded by affection and positive energy, I could see how proud they all were of me, and that made me feel amazing. I could not have made it through all those years of study without their continual love and support.
