Sahil Dhingra

Sahil did the Next Up program in it’s inaugural year while he was in his first year of law school at UBC. Since then, he has gone on to being involved in numerous initiatives at UBC and in the Vancouver community, including but not limited to: legal aid with the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program, running the UBC chapter of Canadian Lawyers Abroad, being a residence advisor, and coordinating the Student Olympic Collaborative – a unique student group which ran student engagement activities and discussions during the the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. After finishing law school in 2010, Sahil is in the process of completing his articling year and hopes to stay connected to the social justice community throughout his career. In his spare time, he is volunteering with Imagine One Day, an NGO working towards educating children in Africa, and training for a half marathon in the spring of 2011.
