Today’s guest on The Unstoppable Woman is an attorney, law professor, TEDx speaker, and leadership coach.

She has been an attorney for twenty years, but it wasn’t a smooth-sailing journey for her. 

During her third year of practice, she felt that her life wasn’t exactly the she wanted it to be and that she was meant for something bigger.

Fifteen years later, she finally found her true passion and purpose.

She went on and followed what truly made her happy, and now she’s touched millions of people as a TEDx speaker and a leadership consultant.

Today, Emem is here to share with us her journey, how she overcame the obstacles along the way, and what it takes to become a TEDx speaker and a coach.
