MEET THE YOUNG AND BRILLIANT, YAMUNA MENON!
Yamuna is from the town of Tripunithura in Kerala. She is a second year law student at National Law School of India University, Bangalore (NLSIU).
Academically brilliant, Yamuna scored 95.8% in her 12th Board examination, secured an All India Rank of 28 in CLAT (national law entrance examination) in 2015 and is currently the topper of her batch at NLSIU (ranked as the best law school in India).
Though Yamuna's combined family income is a modest Rs 12,500 per month, financial hardships have never deterred Yamuna's drive for excellence in a field otherwise saturated with high coaching and fee requirements.
For her exceptional academic and extra-curricular track record, Yamuna has been covered widely in the press.
SETTLING FOR NOTHING BUT THE BEST: PARTICIPATING IN A TOP INTERNATIONAL MOOT COMPETITION.
Yamuna has been selected for the prestigious 18th Annual International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot Competition (IMLAM) to be held at Singapore.
A moot court competition is an extra-curricular competition in which law students take part in mock court proceedings. Only a handful of law students, the very best of the lot, are selected through a very rigorous process to represent the country in an international moot court competition such as IMLAM.
Yamuna has given her 100% and performed exceptionally well to be selected for the prestigious IMLAM. Financial constraint is the only problem holding her back now. You can help her fulfil her dream of representing NLSIU at this moot by supporting her!
DETAILS OF THE MOOT
The moot will be held in Singapore at National University of Singapore from 30 June 2017 to 5 July 2017.
Break-up of the costs associated with the moot:
|Miscellaneous Expenses (Food, Intercity travel and other living expenses)||18,000|
|Purchase of Formal Wear||10,500|
Your donation can encourage a young and bright student like Yamuna to settle for nothing but the best. Financial constraints should never hold anyone back from achieving their dreams, especially not Yamuna. We believe in Yamuna’s dream of winning the IMLAM moot. If you believe in her as well, please consider backing her. Every donation, no matter how small or large, counts!
If 10 people contribute INR 7,500 each, Yamuna will reach her goal in no time!
Note: Yamuna is an IDIA Scholar. IDIA is a non-profit organization which trains underprivileged students to secure admission at the premier law schools of India and supports them in their journey thereafter. IDIA relies completely on donations and grants from individuals and corporates to support students like Yamuna.
