Claire Belliveau: Berthier-Maskinongé

I am a first year student at Dalhousie University in Halifax. While I have yet to declare my major, I believe I will be doing a double major in Political Science and Law, Justice and Society. In the summer of 2018, I started working in the office of my MLA and my interest in politics has only grown since then. I enjoy meeting with constiuents and to help solve problems either with them or on their behalf. In addition, I am an executive member of the Dartmouth East PC Association and have organized a town hall series about healthcare, as it is an extremely relevant issue in Nova Scotia. Also in the summer and early fall of 2018, I volunteered on Tim Houston's successful campaign for leadership of the Nova Scotia Progessive Conservative Party. I have been a volunteer at Pier 21, Canada's National Immigration Museum, for 3 years and sit on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Youth Remembrance Society. I also work as a lifeguard and a swimming instructor and have volunteered with the Dartmouth Special Olympics Swim Team. In 2017, I was one of fourteen Canadians selected for the Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, funded by the Vimy Foundation, to study the interwoven history of Canada, Britain and France during WWI and WWII. As an Acadian, I am extremely proud of my culture and my bilingual upbringing.
