Giving Back to the Community
Aydin is a strong believer in increasing access to justice. During his time at law school, he interned at the Northumberland Legal Centre, where he provided subsidized legal services for low-income clients. He has also volunteered at the Calgary Assembly of Believers, where he has worked with many at-risk refugee families dealing with family and immigration issues.
Aydin has also taken some time to bridge cultural gaps in the community by hosting Persian concerts in Calgary in both Farsi and English to foster the growth of Canadian interest for Iranian music.
