“I’m a Mormon” video of the month: Football-loving barrister

Lola is a barrister in training, working in the prosecutor’s office in London. She’s a huge football fan (check out the victory dance at 3:24) whose own career in the game was cut short by a major surgery to treat severe scoliosis just as she was set to accept a soccer scholarship at an American university. Meet Lola:

Each Fast Sunday, we feature a video from the Mormon.org website. We invite our readers to check back each month for a new favorite, and to share these posts with your friends and family. (Previous posts archive.)


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love the Ogunbotes! Also, who can argue with Lola when she says, “I believe in fish and chips and a movie on Friday night”?

  2. Lovely! And I just saw her profile on a MormonAd in London’s Charing Cross station on Weds., too.

  3. You guys always find the best videos. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Awesome – and I agree completely with the quote johnf excerpted, even if sushi is better than fish and chips.

  5. It is a lovely video, but as an old fan of Rumpole I’m just a bit disappointed that her goal in life is to take silk. Unlike Rumpole, who was adamant that he never would.
