Congratulations to Akash Uppal for the best submission for Shim Law’s 2020 scholarship and our $1,000 award. Below is Akash’s infographic detailing child custody in Canada.
Akash Uppal is heading into his final year of the Bachelor of International Economics program at the Vancouver School of Economics. While at UBC, Akash has been a Senior Editor of the IONA Journal of Economics, an Investment Analyst for Kaimo Investments, and has served on the Provincial Board of the Debate and Speech Association of BC. Previous internship experiences in civil litigation and healthcare consulting have led Akash to his current role as an analyst intern at Analysis Group. Akash hopes to define an impactful career intertwining economic analysis and policy evaluation.
In his spare time, you can find Akash catching up on a fascinating memoir or attempting to dunk at your local basketball court. He is excited for what the future holds and hopes this infographic is useful to those who read it.
