Ms Rolle said: “An actress or a lawyer?
As a child, I always dreamt of becoming one of the two.
In 2017, I was called to the Bahamas Bar and became an attorney at law.
Shortly thereafter, I realised that being a lawyer required me to draft and rehearse the client’s story (facts) and present it or put on a show in a way that grabbed a jury panel or judge’s attention, much like an actress.
“I am thankful that, as an attorney, I have been able to use my voice to stand up for others in the pursuit of justice.
My passion for justice propels me forward for, in the words of Paulo Coelho: ‘There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure’.” As for Callenders & Co’s new associates, Ms Bain was the recipient of multiple awards throughout her education at the University of The Bahamas and the Eugene Dupuch Law School.
