Young Bermudian Woman Called to Bar A new young Bermudian, Roshanda Smith, became the newest member of the Bermuda bar last Friday.
Ms. Smith told TNN’s Trevor Lindsay that her journey to the bar was quite long, but also very rewarding and she would not trade it for the world.
During the ceremony, one barrister compared Ms. Smith’s humility to that of very recently-retired
Justice Charles-Etta Simmons. She was honored and humbled by the comparison.
“ I’m brand new to the legal world and still have a lot to learn, but it is truly an honor to be compared to someone of such high standards,” she said.
Ms. Smith is mostly in trusts and estates right now and is loving that field, but she plans to go wherever law may take her. She would like to thank her parents for their constant support and her legal mentors, including Dante Williams, Cheryl Mapp, Denise Dean and her cousin,
Supreme Court Judge Nicole Stoneham, who inspired her to pursue law in the first place. For any other young Bermudian wishing to pursue law, Ms. Smith urges them to never give up
and to keep striving for their goals, no matter what.
