Access to justice is Caryma’s raison d’être. Her life mantra is to learn a lot, play a lot, and care a lot.

A major component of Caryma’s current work involves advocacy with respect to human rights and social justice issues. She writes and tweets extensively about race, identity politics, and gender-based violence. She also hosts the legal podcast “Cool Your Head.”

Caryma articled at a top-tier Bay Street litigation boutique where she had the opportunity to work under the direct tutelage of some of Canada’s leading litigators. She was selected for a secondment to one of the Big Five banks.

An alumna of the University of Ottawa, she received her Juris Doctor with honours while working towards the Master’s of International Affairs at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University.

In her spare time, Caryma likes to watch professional wrestling. She also enjoys pontificating about the law with her cat.
