Sharon Mo is a fourth year Arts and Law student, majoring in Politics and minoring in Criminology. She placed first in the course 'Prison and Punishment' and has been recognised on the Dean's List in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for the past two years.
Sharon has a keen interest in employment and discrimination law. She worked as a legal assistant to a barrister specialising in the area on Sixth Floor St James Chambers and while living abroad, she volunteered at the D.C. Employment Justice Centre for low-income workers. She has also worked as a paralegal at a boutique law firm.
In 2015, Sharon was awarded a semester exchange scholarship to study politics at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. She was a columnist for the Georgetown Undergraduate Law Review and a copy editor for the Georgetown Voice newsmagazine. Her biggest regret was missing the one Wednesday trivia night that Bill Clinton decided to drop by his old college bar for a drink. This year, she will be taking international law at LSE Summer School, and living in Hamburg for six months to study international business law at Bucerius Law School. She hopes to move and work overseas after graduation.
Not surprisingly, Sharon enjoys independent travel. Her favourite cities are Rio and Istanbul, and a Balkans road trip is in the works. At the moment, she is grappling with German grammar and working on cutting down to just two cups of tea per day.
