Zekri serves on The Florida Bar's Student Education & Admissions to the Bar Committee and assists in reviewing whether Florida law schools are adequately preparing their students for the practice of law. She is the recipient of the 2020 Florida Bar Journal Excellence in Writing Award for her article, "Respectfully Dissenting: How Dissenting Opinions Shape the Law and Impact Collegiality Among Judges," which was published in The Florida Bar Journal.

Being a strong leader among young attorneys, Zekri is quoted in the Authority Magazine
article as saying:
"Knowledge is power, and most people know very little about the legal system, so I use my legal education to help the less fortunate through pro bono work as much as possible. I also recognize that I would not be where I am today without the incredible mentors I have come across during my journey."
Zekri graduated from Riverdale High School's International Baccalaureate program, Florida Gulf Coast University (B.A., summa cum laude
), and the University of Florida Levin College of Law (J.D., cum laude
