As corporate counsel, global compliance at Roblox, Anisha Reddy has found ways to protect those around her. The in-house attorney oversees projects like protecting the online safety of children, moderating content, and governing platforms.
Before her time at Roblox, the Penn State Dickinson law school graduate was at the Future of Privacy Forum, where she worked as policy counsel advocating for online privacy protections for children and teens.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions about being an attorney or the legal function itself?
People tend to assume that attorneys are always serious and adversarial, maybe because of how the profession is portrayed in the media. I promise, we laugh! We have a sense of humor! “Being a lawyer” can mean so many different things, and in many cases, it doesn’t involve daily court appearances.
What’s a piece of unconventional advice you’ve received that was helpful?
Take a beat. Not exactly unconventional, but I think it applies in so many instances. If I’m frustrated with a situation—personal or professional—taking a step back always helps me recalibrate and come back down to Earth. If I’m having a tough time articulating a thought, even though I’m in the weeds on an issue or in the zone, switching to something else, going for a quick walk, or changing up the medium (like printing out my draft and rereading it) always helps.
What song or album motivates you the most?
“Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” by Joy Crookes never fails to pick me up!
