Marukh Zafar is a 2023 graduate from Nelson Mandela High School and she will be entering her first year at the University of Calgary in hopes of pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. She is honoured to be a Shim Law scholar as it will help her put more focus on her academic pursuits and extracurricular involvements.
Outside of school, Marukh has a strong passion for STEM and 3D design. In her free time, she enjoys competing in CAD competitions as they help her develop skills and technicalities that will be vital towards pursuing her dream career in civil engineering. One of her favourite projects was designing a bridge using Fusion360 that was dedicated to the purpose of truth and reconciliation with Canada’s indigenous.
Marukh also enjoys contributing to her community and fuelling women’s empowerment. She volunteers at the Mustard Seed homeless shelter and writes blogs for Soroptimist about women’s rights and equality.
She is immensely excited to start her post-secondary career and see what the future holds for her!
