Alumni Profile | Kazim Habib

My Political Science education at the University of Waterloo is a big part of how I got to work in Canadian politics. By studying at Waterloo, I experienced politics firsthand as part of my co-op terms and applied the classroom discussions we regularly had in student life and in the workplace.
