Protégé: ‘I’ve overcome so much already’

Almost 13 years ago, Rebecca Bishop was in a horrific car accident, which she says she is lucky to have survived. Following this, she has not only overcome the physical and emotional trauma inherent in such an accident but has also emerged from it with pertinent life lessons for all legal professionals. (Editor’s note: This episode may be distressing for some listeners.

On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Elite Building Services co-founder and self-proclaimed Office Goddess and R U OK? Day community ambassador Rebecca Bishop about how and why she has learnt what is most important to her vocationally, her journey of coming to legal study and navigating that course whilst working, what it’s like being an off-campus student and why being a lawyer is the proudest achievement of her life.

Ms Bishop also details the car accident she experienced and the toll it had on her, how she began to move her life forward again, what she learnt from that period of her life, what others can take away from her experiences, and why lawyers should never give up in the face of hardship or adversity.
