Chandra was my International Criminal Law professor for two full-year courses at SOAS. During this period, I learned a great deal from Chandra about the academic side of ICL, but that is not what mattered most to me during this period. She was the first person I had met in the academic world who valued me, believed in me, and made me believe in myself. In large part due to her influence, I had the courage to put myself out there and to stand up for myself in trying and difficult times.
I don’t think she realized what an impact she had on me and my life, and I hope that in some way, somewhere, she is able to realize this. I will miss her and will continue to think of her.
