I was born in Calgary in 1995 and I have lived here ever since. Growing up in Acadia, I went to St. Matthews from kindergarten to grade 9, and I went to Bishop Grandin for high school where I graduated in 2013. Since then I have been pursuing a career in welding. I might not have the political experience of many of the other candidates in the election, but I do have the experience of a young Albertan growing up in the province the PC’s have created. The opportunities are fewer, the cost of education is higher, and the quality of education is suffering. We need a renewed focus on education, so the youth of today can learn the skills they will need to succeed in the future.
