Discovery with Keishunna R. Webster

Keishunna Webster likes her Cosmos times two

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … honesty.

The lawyer I most admire is … Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, who retired in 1991 after helping bring the court through some of the biggest civil rights cases in its history. 

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … U.S. ambassador to Barbados.

I almost quit the law because … I was convinced I had bought the winning Powerball ticket. 

The SCOTUS justice I’d most like to meet is … Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

My courtroom walkup music would be ... “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … The Declaration of Independence. NPR recently tweeted the Declaration of Independence line by line, and some users thought it was “propaganda.” 

My most bizarre talent is … juggling. I taught myself to do it as a kid. Every time I see a bowl of fruit, I just want to start juggling.

The talent I wish I had is … the ability to hear what men are really thinking.

The most fascinating person I ever met is … Barack Obama. I attended a re-election fundraiser in Culver City, California, in 2011 where he spoke at Sony Studios, and I got the chance to say hello and shake his hand. I have never seen someone make less of an effort to charm a room and yet so instantly establish a connection—at least with me. Yes, I’m sure it helped that he was the most powerful man in the world. 

My favorite TED talk is ... “The Power of Introverts” by Susan Cain. I am an introvert probably 60 percent of the time. The best way to put it is I am not always the best conversation starter, but I will engage in the conversation once it is started. 

My motto is … If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. 

I wish I had invented … Facebook. 

If I had a morning show, my co-host would be … Ellen DeGeneres.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … House of Cards.

Nothing cheers me up like … reading the latest Cosmopolitan with a cosmopolitan cocktail.

My colleagues would be surprised to know that … you cannot tear me off an open dance floor.
