Before entering politics, Iqra was actively engaged in the issues facing Canada and peoples around the world. Whether she was raising funds for global disaster relief or building bridges between student groups at York university, helping at her parents’ small business after school or working at an immigration firm, Iqra is engaged in the diverse experiences of Mississauga residents. Believing in the potential of Mississauga-Erin Mills, Iqra took her first steps into politics and ran for office in 2015.
