Harjeen Zibari

Harjeen Zibari is a first-year law student. Before attending Texas Law, she received a B.S. in Child Development and Psychology from the University of Texas at Dallas. Raised by a mother who was not allowed to attend school as a child solely because she was female, Harjeen is particularly focused on ensuring that girls in foreign countries are not denied an education. In previous years, Harjeen volunteered in Dohuk, Kurdistan as a tutor to children who had been displaced by the ISIS invasion. This summer, she will be in the Children’s Unit at the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas. The Children’s Unit provides legal aid to immigrant children, and Harjeen will work closely with clients to set educational and career plans following graduation from high school, track their success in youth empowerment programs, and ensure that their transition to the United States is rich and fulfilling. After law school, Harjeen hopes to work in international human rights.
