I have always been interested in politics and after volunteering on a couple of local campaigns in my riding, I heard about the Fellowship Program from my peers. During my time in the program, I learned the ins and outs of campaigning and got to meet fellow political enthusiasts from across the country. The entire experience, particularly hearing from inspiring leaders from diverse backgrounds, encouraged me to think about my own career. Throughout the school year, CJPAC also helped me become engaged in campus politics and student campaigns.
After my first year of the Fellowship, I became a Conservative Party of Canada intern, working in the Prime Minister’s Office. This past year, I finished my senior Fellowship (second year of the Fellowship Program) and graduated from the Schulich School of Business at York University. I now work as an analyst at Crestview Strategy, a public affairs firm. Thanks to my involvement with CJPAC, I have built a network of Fellowship alumni and professionals who continue to help me succeed.
