Winner - Martina Baindu Egbenda

When a woman is driven by passion and ambition with a little touch of composure, you will find an excellent achiever, who is not limited by obstacles but driven by the will to succeed. For only six years in legal practice, Martina Baindu Egbenda is already an act to follow; she is a superb legal practitioner who specializes in legal research, project management, administration and legal advisory services. And among her peers, she is a very tough force to reckon with

She backs up her credentials with a Masters of Law (LLM) in comparative Constitutional Law from the central European University (Budapest, Hungary), a Bachelor Degree in Law LLB (Hons.) Fourah Bay Collge, University of Sierra Leone, Barrister of Law (BL) council of Legal Education, Sierra Leone Law School, a certificate in oil and Gas Exploration, Sierra Leone Civil service training College and so on and so forth. An endless list of credentials fit for her kind.

She has enjoyed a great deal of success in her career as a Lawyer. In November 2018 she was appointed by the Board of the National Revenue Authority (NRA) as Director, Legal and Corporate Affairs. She is a member of the Sierra Leone Bar Association, Bar association Law Reporting Committee, Legal Access through Women Yarning for Equality Rights and Social Justice and many more. She stands as an epitome of success and a point of reference for young girls who want to pursue similar discipline, that’s why most her free time is spent reading and working with young girls.

For a young lady with such a flawless track record of excellence, it was no surprise that she won the prestigious Eminence Africa Awards for excellence as a legal practitioner. She has many more grounds to conquer and she is constantly evolving in becoming a dynamic young lawyer fit for today’s legal battles.
