About Zainab Iqbal:

As a third-year undergraduate at the University of British Columbia (UBC), my journey toward a major in Psychology has just begun. Initially, two years of my degree were dedicated to the field of Biology, igniting a deep passion for social and developmental psychology. With a strong science background, a solid foundation is laid to explain various psychological phenomena. My experiences include actively participating as a university-level debater and preparing for the role of Events & Marketing Director for the UBC Debate Society in the upcoming fall. The world of debate became a part of my life five years ago, during my initial year of high school. Fuelled by a genuine love for argumentation, as well as the exploration of diverse perspectives and fields of study, the decision to pursue a career in Law was solidified. Gaining hands-on experience within a law firm holds great importance as an aspiring lawyer, providing a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies and various roles inherent in a legal office. Additionally, expanding my impact within the debating community by coaching fellow students and delving into different argumentation styles and approaches remains a top priority to enhance my skills. Currently, an ideal position would offer full-time shifts on weekdays located in either Abbotsford or Vancouver. However, once the fall semester commences, my availability will be limited to part-time positions exclusively within the Vancouver area, as my focus will be on resuming my studies. In looking to explore new opportunities, all inquiries and job offers are wholeheartedly welcome. Thank you for your kind attention.
