I am delighted to be working at McMillan as an articling student after summering with the firm in 2019. Building on my prior experiences, I am grateful for my summer with McMillan, which provided me with exposure to substantive legal issues in international trade, employment, administrative and corporate law matters.

I recently obtained my juris doctor from the University of Windsor. During my time at Windsor Law, I was a research assistant for projects on various topics in intellectual property law. I also had the opportunity to be actively involved in community advocacy initiatives as a caseworker at the Legal Assistance of Windsor clinic. This role led me to organize and deliver a public legal education seminar on human rights advocacy at the Landlord and Tenant Board. The seminar was attended by representatives of community agencies directly involved with clients vulnerable to homelessness.

Recently, I was selected to be a panellist, and presented my academic paper “The Regulation of Art & Cultural Property in International Law” at the 13th Annual Canadian Law Student Conference hosted by the Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues (WRLSI). My academic work received the WRLSI writing prize for the best submission by a Windsor Law student.

Prior to law school, I completed a bachelor of arts at McGill University, specializing in international development studies, art history and management. While studying at McGill, I was able to diversify my interests through volunteer opportunities in the Ismaili community.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, exploring local restaurants, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy participating in competitive activities including swimming and dancing.
