Aliya is a young professional currently working in the accounting department of Cameron Corporation, an Alberta based real estate development company. Previously she worked in public practice as an auditor with a Big Four firm. In her various roles she has worked with small-, mid-, and large-sized clients in ensuring the integrity of the financial information released to stakeholders. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree with a Certificate in Leadership and a Master of Professional Accounting. Aliya successfully completed the Common Final Examination (CFE) in September 2020, a major milestone in her pursuit of a Charted Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, which she anticipates receiving by early 2022.
A competitive dancer from the age of four, Aliya realized she wasn’t ready to hang up her dance shoes after high school and chose to continue dancing into her university years with the student-led group, MOD Contemporary Dance Movement. Aliya experienced first-hand the transformative impact that dance as an art form has on both the individual and society at large, and she remains passionate about bringing the arts to those who do not have the opportunity nor luxury of accessing it through traditional channels.
