Episode 4: A Woman’s Single-Handed Journey: A Lawyer, Mother, Daughter + Everything in Between

Guest: Jasmine Daya

Jasmine talks about the unique experiences of what she went through as a woman at the start of her law career, what strife she faced, worries she endured, and how she powered through it all. She expressed how community and cultural perception plays a role with judgement, “what will people think”.

As a successful lawyer and inspiration to other women, Jasmine shares that not many people know the details of her story, and she talks about her experiences of those not knowing her past and envying her success to date. Jasmine talks about the time she encountered a fork in the road and took a firm decision, and she chose to swim, or at least do whatever she could that would lead her to the path to swim. Jasmine imparts her wisdom here to listeners by discussing how the sky is the limit — and if you want it, you do need to put in the work, it wont come easy, but if you keep at it, it surely transpires.
