Our American Council of Young Political Leaders delegation had the incredible opportunity to have tea with the Honorable Isaac Lenaola, one the seven Supreme Court Justices of Kenya. 👨🏿‍⚖️

One of the most impressive facts about him is that he was critical to Kenya's new constitution that was implemented in 2010. Not only did he spearhead the effort, much of the language he wrote remained largely unchanged. Essentially, we were sitting with Thomas Jefferson. 🤯

Of course, I gifted him with Arizona State University merch which is home to the Sandra O'Connor College of Law, named after the first female Supreme Court Justice in the United States. ♀️

Many trailblazing women come from Arizona and I am no exception 💁🏾‍♀️
