He first joined the team in high school during his Grade Eleven year. His charisma led him to be the captain of Team 3739 in 2012, at the same time as the high school teacher strike. It is because of this that Team 3739 merged with Central Secondary to form Team 4814: United Robotics Team of London. Ali was the main pushing force behind robotics and it was due to his leadership skills that he was able to get the team to the FRC World Championship. Ali continues to serve as a role model to the youth in the London community in both FRC Robotics as well as other associations. He is currently finishing up his dual degree at Western University in Software Engineering and Ivey Business, and will soon be a Program Manager, at Microsoft in Seattle.
