CAREER: Lawyer



    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Jamirah said: “Though we all know that our future develops from our past, we still should not let the ugly truth/painful truth discourage us from reaching our goals. The only way that I can avoid having the painful truth put me down is to express the best of me and always fight for the best so I can become the best version of myself. TNHF’s monthly Leadership Development workshops helped me change to best version of me and brought out the best in me.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Jamirah discussed the biggest change in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “The biggest change in my life since the end of COVID restrictions is to always expect that anything could come up, to be humble to everyone, and ready for anything.”
    • September 13, 2021 – Jamirah shared her favorite song and what it means to her: My song is called “Most High” by Flavour: I actually love listening to this song, regardless of my own religion, because it makes me feel so connected to God. It makes me feel strong to fight my battles because, with Him, I know I am never alone. Nothing is impossible with Him in my life and no pain is forever.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Jamirah shared what resilience means to her: “To me, resilience means the capacity or ability to recover quickly from all the downfalls that come our way, like mental illness, depression, and misfortunes, and still remain strong, never giving up.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Jamirah said her biggest lesson from 2020 was: “Saving money: In 2020 quarantine, we did not expect that period. We suffered very much where no employees were allowed to go to work and this led to unemployment. People must do their best to save money so as to fill a gap which could be caused by the unexpected like the quarantines. Expect what is unexpected.”
