American Teen Gabrielle Turnquest Makes History as Britain’s Youngest Lawyer

Yet another teen blowing our minds!

Gabrielle Turnquest, an 18-year-old from Florida has made history as Britain’s youngest person to qualify as a lawyer!

Gabrielle attended Liberty University in Virgina at 16, received her graduate diploma in law at 17, and just passed the Bar Professional Training Course at the University of Law in England – the average course graduate is 27 years old.

Her sister Kandi passed her exams, at the age of 22. This is one smart pair of siblings!

Being “called to the Bar” in Britain, also qualifies Gabrielle to practice in the Bahamas, where her parents are originally from, and where she plans to work. Additionally, Gabrielle expects to return to home to the U.S. to qualify as a lawyer here, too.

WOW, just WOW!
