Shelby and Aysha are the very best of what we have always believed Queen’s students can be. They are visionary leaders who imagine a brighter future and are marching fearlessly toward it. But there are significant obstacles in their path. Shelby says, “I have lofty goals, and they would have remained just dreams if I hadn’t received financial assistance.”
Shelby adds, “After Queen’s, I want to be a criminal crown attorney. Ultimately, I would like to sit on the Supreme Court. I am not only female, I am also Indigenous. And I know that if you want change in the legal system, you have to go all the way up. And that’s something I would like to play a part in.”
And Aysha shares her goals, “What I want to do after university is and other people like myself with unique stories who can go [to Bangladesh] and connect with young people who want to make a difference and help them figure out how to do that.”
