    Multi-talented Isvari Mohan Launched Her Singing Career

    in Writing

    Isvari Mohan is a singer, Global Law Scholar, and author of the war drama "The Eyes of Mikra." In her daily life, Isvari, besides being a published author, is a law school student at Georgetown Law, where she is a member of the Global Law Scholars Program and a Peer Advisor.
    She is, as she puts it, “super-interested” in National Security and Cyber Security Law. During the summer of her first year Isvari worked for the general counsel of Ingenico in Brussels in Data Privacy and Cyber Security.
    In 2014 Isvari received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California at Berkeley in Political Science. While there she worked at a think-tank in India, received several scholarships, and met some really great people.
    She also used to be in physics and math. According to her, “This is not because I'm Asian. It's because I'm a nerd”.
    Her background includes research in mathematics, astronomy, astrophysics, and particle physics, in addition to having worked at Fermilab, CERN, and LBL. Isvari can program software programs, have read Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein for fun, enjoy Marvel Comics, and has “terrible eye-sight”, probably related.
    Besides being employed as a columnist at the Washington Times, Isvari has a love for traveling and learning languages. When she has time for fun (besides writing, music, and art), she loves to ice-skate, cook, and hang out with my sister and her absolutely adorable dog, her best friends.
