Brayden Fights the Good Fight

Brayden Sharp, Class of 2010, Newman

Brayden completed his Double Degree in Law and Criminology with Deakin University and graduated with Distinction in February, 2017. After graduating, Brayden spent time in Nepal teaching victims of human trafficking to become paralegals. During this time, he also started the modern slavery awareness website, 30 Million to None (see link from this page).

Brayden is currently undertaking his Master’s in Public International Law at Leiden University in The Netherlands, where he is focussing on the legality of the possession and use of nuclear weapons. Brayden hopes to use his knowledge to assist in the elimination of nuclear weapons and other inhumane weapons.

During his time at Nagle, Brayden was elected Junior Captain of Newman House and was later a member of the College Leadership Team for 2010. He displayed his interest in the law early; gaining work experience with the Melbourne Magistrates Court as part of his Year 9 studies. After completing VCE Legal Studies in Year 11, Brayden was accepted to study a legal enhancement course through Monash University as part of his Year 12 studies.

Brayden is a perfect example of past students still living the Nagle motto Let Your Light Shine. Well done Brayden, we look forward to following your successes in the future.
