Precious Smith became the newest member of the Bermuda Bar. After being called, she expressed sincere gratitude to those who have helped her get to where she is today. The ceremony was made even more emotional due to her late great-grandmother Grace Woodley, who helped her quite a bit during her journey, not being able to see this day.
Ms. Smith will be heading into the insolvency and corporate restructuring side of law, helping companies solve their financial difficulties and gain back solvency.
She encourages any young person looking for direction in their life or education to stay focused and dedicated and strive to do their best.
“ No matter how bad the circumstances might be, continue to keep your head in the books and know that if you work hard enough, you will achieve your goals,” she said.
She would personally like to thank her mother Wendy Woodley, her adopted mom Tanya Parris, her sister Imani Smith, Leah, Velma and Esther Woodley, as well as all of her firm colleagues including Rod Sterling, Kanye George and Neil Horner.
“ My family is and has been the driving force of my life. I’ve seen my mother struggle for a long time by herself ad it propelled me to make something out of myself and reach my goals so that I won’t have to continue a cycle of struggle and try to make life easier for her,” Ms. Smith said. “ Hopefully, I can do that and help her in any way possible.”
