Roza is an articling student at Overholt Law LLP. Her participation in the first-year moot at the University of Ottawa sparked her interest in the field of labour and employment law. She decided to pursue her legal career in this field because of its versatility and uniquely relatable nature.
While attending law school, Roza summered at two law firms, one of which specialized in labour and employment law. She was also actively involved in her community by volunteering at Pro Bono Ontario as a triage coordinator where she facilitated consultation of unrepresented parties. Roza was one of five students selected to be part of the University of Ottawa’s employment law clinic fellowship program. Having been invited to participate in this new and innovative clinic allowed her to meet clients from all walks of life and guide them through the complicated field of employment law.
Roza is fluent in Farsi and English. Prior to law school, she worked at a busy community pool where she learned important life lessons by teaching the sport she holds so dear: firstly, to train smarter not harder, and secondly, that one of the most important things one can do in life is to exhale.
Roza spends her downtime taking long walks along the seawall, travelling to new destinations and inviting her friends, family (and their dogs) over for a night filled with laughter, wine and cheese.
