Zeenat recognises that she has been immensely fortunate to have received scholarships during her academic training, without which she would have had to rethink her career path. Now she is utilising her career at the Bar as a platform to try and effect meaningful change for those that come after her, as well as her clients, the community and society in general. She says, “It’s important to utilise the skills and opportunities we have been afforded with, to contribute, fight back and stand up against things that are wrong. If being where I am means I have a stronger platform to do that, then I am going in the right direction.”
