2022 Immerse Education Essay Competition
Statement from Katelyn:
As an avid student journalist with a keen interest in the Law, I decided to partake in the 2022 Immerse Education Essay Competition under the Law category. My research essay sought to posit domestic servitude is a form of modern slavery. Through it, I examined the root causes of domestic servitude, evaluated the effectiveness of current policies put forth by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to manage it, and finally proposed suggestions for policy improvement. I am honoured that my essay was selected by merit from thousands of scripts globally to receive a partial scholarship of 20% to attend any of the physical summer school programmes and online academic programmes offered by Oxford, Cambridge and LSE.
Currently, I am hoping to enrol in an online Law research programme that will allow me to write a research paper under the tutelage of Oxbridge professors.
