How are you involved on campus?
I am the Vice-President of Academic Affairs for Political Science (VP POL) on the Political, International and Development Studies Student Association (PIDSSA). This is my second year as an executive member.
What was your best experience at university so far?
PIDSSA – meeting amazing people, getting to represent students and making their university experience better is the best feeling in the world.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Outgoing, energized and dedicated
Describe your best date:
Nice dinner, a bottle of wine and Netflix.
Which Hollywood star would be your ideal partner?
Hmmm this is a hard one. I’m going to have to go with … Betty White! Man, she hasn’t aged in forever and can play beer pong like a champ.
What is your dream job?
Who is your role model?
Rick Mercer. His political satire seamlessly blends important issues of the day with comedy, in a way that allows any person to understand what is happening. Also, he advocates for youth to go vote which is pretty important.
What do you plan to do after you graduate?
Maybe grad school but most likely work. I really just want to pay off my student debts.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I see myself probably still in Ottawa working in some capacity with the government.
