SHANYA AH-TON

President

Shanya is a third year International Development student. She co-founded the Mock Trial Team because she believes there is nothing quite like the thrill of trial and she'd like other Mock Trial students to experience it. Her personal involvement with Mock Trial (for six years now) has helped her hone in on an interest in law, and has given her a confidence-building, competitive outlet. She's excited to provide support and a sense of community to students who feel the same!
