Milly Bartolome, 2015 Undergraduate Scholar
Milly Bartolome is a political science major with a Spanish minor at the University of Georgia. On campus, Milly is a student ambassador for the UGA School of Public and International Affairs as well as a student advocate and founding member of the Moot Court Team. This year Milly will be serving as the President of the University of Georgia Mock Trial Program where she learns about and practices law, the field in which she hopes to pursue a career. While in South Africa on study abroad, Milly volunteered as a student teacher in an after-school program for students in a small township. Milly studied how the impact of discrimination and lack of civil rights can have lasting effects on a society and government over time. Through experiences abroad and with the Mock Trial and Moot Court programs Milly has developed a keen interest in human rights law. Milly’s passion and dedication to the field helped her secure an internship this summer with the Department of Justice in the Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section of the Criminal Division.
