Olivia Corkum: South Shore--St. Margarets

My name is Olivia Corkum I’m 23 and call Chester, Nova Scotia home. I am a recent graduate of St. Francis Xavier University with a BA in Political Science. I will be furthering my education this coming September when I begin a public relations program with hopes of someday entering the political sphere. At present, I am working as a legal assistant; but for the past several summers I have been a server at the Chester golf club. While slinging hash is not my long-term career goal, I have acquired many transferable skills which will serve me well in future endeavours. When it comes to recreation, I have recently retired from competitive hockey; but still managed to teach some Syrian newcomers to stand up on skates, I love fostering wayward kittens and when it comes to a pub crawl I am always game. I am very excited to participate in the DoV initiative. Meeting young people from Canada’s 338 federal ridings will be rewarding, eye-opening and a privilege for which I am extremely grateful
