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. I finished my senior Fellowship (second year of the Fellowship Program) and graduated from the Schulich School of Business at York University. I worked as an analyst at Crestview Strategy, a Policy Advisor in the Office of the Premier of Ontario and am currently the Government Relations Manager at Skip the Dishes.
Thanks to my involvement with CJPAC, I have built a network of Fellowship alumni and professionals who continue to help me succeed.
