Aisha is a dedicated and slightly nerdy activist who is very enthusiastic about changing the course of her social justice journey from international affairs to local concerns this year. After graduating with her B.A this June, Aisha has become increasingly interested in local social and environmental justice. Her journey began when she travelled to Pakistan for her gap year following high school. For the first time, Aisha realized the importance of constitutionally entrenched rights for citizens and women’s equality rights. Believing strongly in the mutual relationship between laws, and social attitude and behaviour, Aisha enrolled in Law and Society at the University of Calgary. For four years she kept herself busy by being an active member of the campus community through leadership positions in UNICEF on Campus and the Western Muslim as well as by being a Peer Mentor for the Communication and Cultures Co-Curricular Peer Mentoring Program. Her two year term as UNICEF on Campus’s Vice President allowed for Aisha to develop a strong interest in children’s rights. Her coursework has greatly influenced her to accept that she is a liberal feminist. Both of these influences combined have shaped Aisha’s future ambition of working within Canada’s legal sector. Using this year to prepare herself for the real world, Aisha is currently expanding her local volunteer work, dabbling in online blogs, applying for law school, and of course baking for sanity.
