Gabrielle Turnquest, an 18-year-old whose hometown is Windermere, became the youngest barrister in England and Wales last month when she passed the Bar Professional Training Course. According to the Daily Mail, she's now the youngest person to become a barrister in more than 600 years.

What's she going to do with that degree? She says she hopes to become a fashion lawyer. Who says Millennials have no ambition?
