Sephora is also the founder, and host of law school podcast, Topping the Curve. Topping the Curve is a law school podcast that interviews minority women attorneys and law students, about their career paths and experiences in the legal field. When first launching Topping the Curve, Sephora had the goal of helping underrepresented law students succeed in law school, and in their careers by providing them with knowledge, access, and advice. Since then, the podcast has turned into much more than that, with a broader audience of not only law school students but also new attorneys, “seasoned” attorneys, and other business gurus and entrepreneurial hearts.
