My #Lawve Story
Journey to happiness.
They say a person's real gift in life is what they were asked to stop doing as a child. I was a fashion-loving negotiator, so here I am; a creative lawyer.
"Do one thing every day that makes you happy" is a principle I live by. I have come to learn that loving what you do and living your dream is more attainable than ever imagined. Life is simple. You just need to get a little creative and resourceful. But most importantly,
