Sinenhlanhla, or Sne as she is popularly known, has always had a passion for law and entrepreneurship. She completed her law degree and started working at a law firm, but she soon realized that she wanted to be her own boss and make a difference in the legal industry.
She decided to take a bold step and quit her job to start her own law firm, despite the challenges and doubts that she faced. She did not let her age, gender or the intimidating nature of the law field stop her from making history.
“I took it as a challenge upon myself to do it. I then decided that no matter what people say I’m going to do this,” she told Power FM. “It was difficult from the point where I started my degree to where I am now. I don’t regret anything.”
Her law firm specializes in family law, personal injury, civil litigation and more. She is currently the only person running the firm, but she hopes to expand and hire more staff in the future. She also aims to inspire other young people, especially women, to pursue their goals and not give up on their dreams.
