This story is a perfect example of what a young Black person can achieve when given the opportunity.

According to NewsOne.com, a Black teenage girl named Gabrielle Turnquest became the youngest person to pass the Bar exam of England and Wales at age 18, allowing her to practice law there. A native of Florida, Turnquest previously broke the record for the youngest person to graduate from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., at age 16.

And she’s not stopping there- she plans to return home to the States to tackle the American Bar exam, as well as the Bar of The Bahamas, where her parents were born.
