Zoha moved from Pakistan to pursue her undergraduate degree at the University of Calgary. After graduating with a BA in Psychology, she has been involved in working with people with disabilities. Driven by her passion for research, she has held previous research related positions in the Psychology department at the University of Calgary for projects aimed towards reducing the stigma towards mental illness, as well as observing people with depression. In Pakistan, she assisted in a research project that entailed a double-blind drug trial set out in hospitals and rehab centres which intended to help those who had the potential to develop psychosis.
At W21C, Zoha is currently assisting in a research project that is focused towards the population and public health transformational roadmap in Alberta. She is thrilled to be working at W21C as her long-term goal is to be able to carry out her own research that will impact the well-being of others in positive ways.
Apart from work, Zoha enjoys spending her free time providing occupational therapy to one of her previous preschool aged clients with autism, collaborating with creative artists in Calgary for her blog, as well as attending spin and hip-hop dance classes.
