What do you hope to accomplish as president of the Young Liberals?
To get more people educated about the political process and at a younger age, and to make sure youth are able to properly hold their government accountable.You know, they should be able to think for themselves about politics. Like, the Young Liberals recently passed policies calling for high school civic education, and to make sure that before people go to post-secondary institutions they are well prepared for the transition into adulthood. So really, I want, above all, to let young people know that if they join the Young Liberals they can make a real difference in the way their communities work.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
I’ve got two, and both of them happened in class at MUN. Once I was sitting in my German class when all of a sudden my professor asked me to open up my book - when I did like a dozen beer caps fell out. I was mortified at the time, but looking back I guess it was pretty funny.
Then another time, I was leaving class with my backpack full of toilet paper (taking toilet paper from MUN was cheaper than buying it) but as I got up to leave apparently my backpack wasn’t all zipped up and all these rolls of toilet paper fell out and went everywhere. Good times!
What is your most memorable moment?

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

My best quality would have to be knowing how to have a good time. My worst quality is my sense of direction.
