I finished the law component of my degree in 2016.

My Story

I completed high school in 2012 and started my university life at Adelaide University studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science. After studying psychology for a year I realised it wasn’t for me and decided to transfer to a Bachelor of Laws at the University of South Australia. I consciously decided to transfer on the basis that the law degree at UniSA is more practical and I could get more hands on experience at mooting, witness examination and negotiation.


I have been involved in various activities at the University of South Australia including:

  • Business Mentoring Program
  • Career Mentoring Program
  • Your Culture My Culture

Early in 2016 I travelled to Europe and did an elective (Human Rights and International Law) at Masaryk University, located in Brno, Czech Republic. In 2016 I was also elected as the President of the Afghan Students Association at UniSA and was also the Marketing Officer for the Bright Futures Society.
