Joselynn Fember opened her law firm at the age of 25. There are few who can boast this level of success at such a young age, and even fewer who were able to achieve this as the first person in their family to obtain a degree. As a young woman and lawyer, Fember has had to frequently push back against people who underestimate and undervalue her, and she’s had to remind herself that it’s pointless to compare yourself to those who come from different circumstances. Through her work, she hopes to inspire people to persevere, to overcome self-doubt and to see themselves as capable and deserving. She encourages entrepreneurs in the legal field to seek working opportunities however possible, to be patient and determined in working towards goals, and to remain disciplined and dedicated. Through these steps, she has been able to build strong working relationships and overcome all obstacles.
Be teachable and open to being stretched, but do not compromise on the core values that set you apart from the rest.
