Shifra Khan

I moved to Toronto from کراچی Pakistan when I was 12 years old, and turned 18 on New Year's 2021. I switched to self-paced online high-school two years ago and will be graduating this year + taking a gap year instead of going to university.

I'm currently building a tool that allows low-income women (in کراچی) in domestically abusive situations to access location-based help. Most recently, I was building a maternal mortality public health intervention with the Jigawa State Government in Nigeria. Prior to that, I was feature engineering as a Data Analyst at CIBC, one of Canada's largest banks, on the Advanced Analytics team. I started off as the youngest intern at KPMG Canada, building an internal tool for the Cyber Risk team. I’ve also controlled a 3D-printed car with my brainwaves.
