Her story

Kiarah is a Family Lawyer at Brisbane Family Law Centre.

Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now (whether at home, work, in the community, etc.)?

I believe that me, my loved ones, and my clients have a right to an awesome life. My superpower is unwavering advocacy and relentless encouragement to help achieve this.

What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?

Embracing, imperative, enriching.

What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?

Those in the majority need to excavate their privileged experiences and thinking, the uncomfortableness of this does not matter.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

I wanted to prove to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to and change my story.
