Nikki Johnson-Huston, Esq. calls herself an unlikely success story on her website, http://www.nikkijohnsonhuston.com/, but as you will learn, the word ‘unlikely’ is actually far from accurate. Born into poverty, she was homeless at age 9, failed out of college by age 18. She did not let that stop her. Nikki got a job as a nanny during the day, went back to college at night and graduated in 1998 from St. Joseph's University, the same college she had previously failed out of. A 2004 graduate of Temple University Beasley School of Law in Philadelphia she earned a J.D./M.B.A/ LL.M in Taxation in only four years. Nikki is a Tax Attorney in Philadelphia. I will be asking her to share her personal story of how she put her life back on track, fought through adversity and never gave up on her dreams no matter the odds. She has a message, I believe, that we can all learn from. And that message is that, with the right elements of faith and perseverance, we can all find our superpowers in the midst of adversity.
