Roya is a junior student majoring in Law at Baku State University. She intends to pursue her career as a human rights defender. Her overall purpose, as a young lawyer, is to see a society living under the rule of law. She is therefore eager on promoting the rule of law and boosting legal and democratic awareness among citizens. By far, she has contributed to the civic engagement of youth by volunteering in NGOs and state institutions and being constantly involved in international and local activities. She is very convinced that being her new adventure, the YEA initiative will bring up new opportunities for her, and assist her to accomplish her aforementioned desire.
