Technically, Nonhlanhla Mtshali is a manager of legal services with Postbank, but she’s becoming more influential as an attorney who blogs about legal issues for the layman. Her blogs across social media platforms help ordinary people understand some trending legal affairs. She simplifies complex jargon and counters fake news and misguided opinions. Mtshali plans to consolidate her guidance with an app that informs users about legal affairs and lets them download relevant documents. Law is a field that influences our everyday lives, and it’s important for people to make informed decisions and understand their rights, she says. Her approachable attitude makes her a popular analyst for media outlets when they cover proposed new laws or changes to existing ones. Although Mtshali has encountered racism and old-fashioned attitudes in the profession, she’s determined to rise above them and cement herself as a legal trendsetter.
Failure is part of the process and you can only win if you are doing something.
