Hello! I'm Faiza.

I'm a friendly chatbot on Facebook Messenger, here to make it easier to talk about violence against women. Together, we can learn how to spot signs of abuse, or I can also help you find help in your area.

In Pakistan, domestic violence takes place in up to 80% of all households, with 53% of teenage girls believing that domestic violence is justified.

Prior to that, I was feature engineering as a Data Analyst at CIBC, one of Canada's largest banks, on the Advanced Analytics team. I started off as the youngest intern at KPMG Canada, building an internal tool for the Cyber Risk team. I’ve also controlled a 3D-printed car with my brainwaves.
