Briana Williams, a 24-year-old single mother has shared the story of how she achieved her dreams to complete law school. The lady who recently graduated received her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School.

William revealed that she had gone into labour during her final year exams. She explained that after she gave birth, she would ask friends and lecturers on school to look after her baby while she went to class and other times she had to take her to class.
According to William, she never thought she would be able to make it. She expressed that due to her background she had been scared the first time she came to Harvard Law School, compared to other students who came from privileged backgrounds.
She explained that her father had encouraged her, telling her that she was both street smart and book smart an advantage many of the privileged students don't possess.
William said despite the fact that people told her that she wouldn't make it because she had a baby, she made it just because of her baby girl. She also thank God for seeing her through the trying time.
The 24-year-old who worked as a waitress and a bartender in New York now has a job waiting for her at a top law firm in Los Angeles.
