Back when she was a kid, Anne Brafford had her future mapped out. “I wanted to be a lawyer since I was 11 years old,” she said. “I was motivated by the idea of wanting to make a positive impact on the world.” Brafford grew up in the ’70s and ’80s, a period she referred to as “the era of all the civil-rights lawyers,” so she dreamed of earning her law degree and help make the world a better place. “That’s why I wanted to become a lawyer,” she explained. “When I went into the law I was so proud of what I would be able to achieve.” And achieve she did.
