Farah Kazi Iqbal is currently a student of Economics and Social Sciences at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Born to a set of parents who believed in being a well-rounded individual, Farah’s love for extracurricular began at a very early age. She was taught to swim by her swimmer father at the age of 3, and learned how to bike before she could even read. She found her passion in debate when she joined her school debate club in 2006 and won competitions in her city for the next few years. At BRAC University, she has had the privilege to continue debating, where she represented her institution at the World’s Universities Debating Championships and United Asian Debating Championships. In October 2012, Farah represented Bangladesh at One Young World in Pittsburgh, United States and spoke on Leadership and Governance. Furthermore, she became the Debate Champion at the UN Youth General Assembly in 2013. Currently, Farah is in her final year of study and is working in BRAC University to raise “Drug Awareness” through various intramural sports (i.e. basketball) tournaments and campaigns.
