New lawyer Mae Diane Azores of the University of Sto. Tomas-Legazpi paid tribute to her grandmother who just passed away last month as she topped the 2019 Bar Examination.
KAMI learned that Azores also shared her struggles as an aspiring lawyer before, as well as her plans.
In a report by the Inquirer (authored by Neil Arwin Mercado), Azores shared that before her lola passed away, she was just waiting for the Bar Exam result to come out. However, it was too late.
“Before siya pumanaw sabi nya sakin, ‘Inaantay ko na lang sana yang results mo bago ako umalis,’ kaso yun nga po hindi na kınaya kasi grabe na rin ‘yung sakit niya,” Azores said.
“I believe she’s watching from heaven cheering for me,” she added.
In her interview with News 5, the new lawyer shared that she has been praying hard to pass the Bar Exam and she did not expect to be the Top 1.
“Ang prayer ko talaga is, ‘Lord, ipasa mo ko. Let this be according to your will, sana maging topnotch na rin ako, kahit top 8 lang.’ Nung nakita ko na top 1 hindi ko talaga in-expect,” she said.
In order to reach her goal to make it to the top, she dedicated her life to studying. She said that she would wake up at 4 am to study for 10 to 12 hours.
Azores also shared that she could see herself as a litigator. She added that she wants to be a trial lawyer and to focus on labor law.
As previously reported by KAMI, the result of the 2019 Bar Examination was released by the Supreme Court on April 29 (Wednesday).
