9. Eboni Williams
Another lawmaker that makes it to our list is Charlotte-born Eboni K. Williams. This multi-talented news anchor has seen and done it all. An interesting fact about Eboni is that not only was she a public defender, but she has also graced the halls of beauty pageants. Since she knew her way around a make-up bag and a flashy wardrobe, Eboni would walk into courtrooms runway-polished, earning her the name ‘Barbie Lawyer.’ Eboni is also a published author, having written the book, Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance and Success, a book that talks about why appearance is important to one’s success.
