Shakira has recently completed her Master’s in Law and Legal Studies from Carleton University and is set to graduate this coming November. She has experience in several different research roles during her time at Carleton. Her thesis research reflects her interests in legal policies affecting young witnesses in the criminal justice system.

During Shakira’s time at Carleton, she held an advisory position on the EDI/BIPOC Committee for the Department of Law and Legal Studies in addition to the Graduate Student’s Legal Association. She has worked for professors whose research ranged from youth and digital media to international law. She has led training sessions for fellow teaching assistants while studying at Carleton on teaching sensitive topics to students.

Prior to Carleton, Shakira earned her Honours B.A. in Psychology and Childhood & Social Institutions from Western University.
