To be a lawyer is no easy feat as some Nigerian law students do not pass their bar examinations. Despite that, a large number have managed to become lawyers.
Legit.ng has gathered the interesting story of a visually impaired lady, Hafsah Suleiman, who was called to bar after passing the August/September 2018 bar final examinations.
The inspiring story was shared by her sister, Fatima, on Twitter. According to her, Hafsah became blind at the tender age of two but she did not let it affect her dreams and aspirations.
Her tweet reads:
“This is my sister... One whom I'm well pleased. Hafsah became visually impaired at the age of 2. She can't see like everyone else. Except with her mind's eyes. Sharp and precocious. Inspite all the problem, her dream, hope and education didn't suffer.”

Fatima went further to explain how tasking it was for Hafsah to be in law school but that her dedication yielded good results at the end of the day.
"She had to cover the syllabus as there was nearly no one to compare notes with, well save for a few kind and discerning course mates who engaged and rubbed minds with her. Beyond this, she faced discrimination from the intolerant and the unfortunate.
