Georgia Moody (4 Sep – 29 Oct, 2016)
My name is Georgia Moody, and I will be volunteering, at the Bridges Across Borders Southeast Asia Community Legal Education Initiative (BABSEACLE) Thailand office, for the next couple of months. I was born in Adelaide, South Australia, in 1998, lived there for 2 years, before moving to Himeji, Japan, and grew up bilingual in Japanese and English. I moved to Singapore, when 8 years old, and have been there, for the past 10 years. My hobbies include dancing, reading, travelling, eating, watching movies, playing sports and meeting new people. My favourite sports are skiing, surfing, basketball, running, boxing and netball. I have also played the cello and flute, for 14 years. I graduated from the United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA), last May, and completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Starting next February, I will be either reading Law with International Relations, or studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics, in Australia. After university, I hope to eventually work for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as a diplomat. Thereafter, I aspire to work for the United Nations, and to practice Human Rights and International Law. Finally, I have been very fortunate to be a part of the incredible 5th Asia Pro Bono Conference team. It was an inspiring experience. I hope to work extra hard, in order to contribute towards one of BABSEACLE’s primary missions, which is the establishing, strengthening and supporting community and university-based Clinical Legal Education programs in order to achieve better access to justice and strengthen rule of law.
Santichai Mamoon (15 Aug – 11 Nov, 2016)
Hello my name is Santichai Mamoon, and I am 21 years old, an undergraduate student at the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University, Thailand studying Humanities and majoring in English. My hobbies are travelling, reading scientific short stories and meeting new people. I live with my Father, Grandmother and older Sister. As a Buddhist I have a strong belief in helping to support people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
I’m proud to be a part of the Bridges Across Borders Southeast Asia Community Legal Education Initiative (BABSEACLE) team, in Chiang Mai. This is because BABSEACLE is focused on helping people in so many ways, including making offenders aware of the law and explore positive ways to rehabilitate them. I feel strongly about providing access to justice to those who have been domestically abused. Thank you to BABSEACLE for giving me this wonderful opportunity and experience.
Juthamart Auychai (15 Aug – 11 Nov, 2016)
Hello! My name is Juthamart Auychai, but you can call me “Aom”. Currently, I am an intern at Bridges Across Borders Southeast Asia Community Legal Education Initiative (BABSEACLE), in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I am 21 years old, major in English, at Chiang Rai Rajabhat University, and my hobbies are reading, watching movies and travelling. I chose to intern at BABSEACLE, because I like to work and interact with new people from diverse backgrounds. As importantly, I am also very interested in law, as I think it is applicable to everything in life. BABSEACLE provides access to justice, helps to assist everyone and promotes equality. Finally, I hope to get many new experiences and knowledge, from everyone.
