A heartwarming TikTok video featuring an aspiring barrister has taken the internet by storm, amassing nearly 9 million views in just four days. In the viral clip, Cardiff-based Seren Lewis shares the emotional moment when she and her grandparents discover that she has passed her bar exams.

Having pursued her LLB and Masters in Manchester, Lewis went on to complete the bar course with The University of Law. But she attributes her success not only to her hard work but also to the unwavering support of her grandparents. Taking her in at the tender age of two, they even retired early to care for her. Lewis expresses her deepest gratitude and acknowledges their selfless act, proclaiming them as the driving force behind her achievement.

The cost of attending bar school is known to be exorbitant and still remains largely inaccessible to many people living in the UK. Lewis reveals that her grandparents decided to remortgage their house, which they had already paid off, in order to fund her education. Without their sacrifice, she admits that she wouldn’t be where she is today.

The video has struck a chord and has garnered nearly 9 million views, along with over 15k comments. The outpouring of support and congratulations from viewers has touched Lewis, with comments such as, “I’m literally crying for you” and many others celebrating her remarkable accomplishment.


Passing the Bar and qualifying as a Barrister is my biggest accomplishment to date. However it would have never happened without my Grandparents who I can only be forever grateful for. Taking me in at 2 years old and retiring early to care for a toddler was the most selfless act anyone could have done for me. Bar school is extremely expensive and is still so inaccessible to the majority of people living in the UK. To be able to attend, they decided to remortgage their house that they had paid off so many years ago and without that, I would not be where I am today. So, as much as this acheivement is down to my hard work and MANY late nights, I share this acheivement with them.
