Somaya Amiri

Born and raised in Afghanistan, Somaya is in her second year of BCL/JD as a McCall McBain Scholar at McGill’s Faculty of Law. Although she considers herself a Vancouverite at heart, she moved to Montreal for her undergraduate degree. She completed her Honours B.A. in Political Science with a minor in French from McGill University as a Loran Scholar. Her experiences working on parliament hill, the municipal government in France, her recent journey working for the Refugee Law Project in Uganda, and her involvement in immigrant and refugee communities shape her understanding of human rights and its interplay with politics and law. She looks forward to joining CW4W and supporting women’s education in Afghanistan, an issue she is deeply passionate about.
