Hi everyone, I’m Afifa and I’m pleased to serve as your Equity Representative for the 2019-2020 academic year! Prior to attending law school, I completed an undergraduate degree in Political Science (Honours), with a focus on international politics and women’s rights. I have experience facilitating social justice workshops, assisting at a pro bono legal clinic in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, advocating for sexual violence support services for university students, and working as a summer community outreach coordinator at a legal advocacy organization for migrant workers.
At UVic Law, I am an active participant in many student groups and I served as a Co-President of FemLaw last year. In my free time, I enjoy attending community events and participating in anti-oppression initiatives. I look forward to working with students and faculty to facilitate an inclusive environment for all. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with your equity and diversity-related concerns and questions.
